I will be entering Thailand overland and have no idea how long i will be staying, although i do know it will not exceed 30 days. How does this work please, do i need a tourist visa os i dont have proof of onward travel?

[At the discretion of the immigration officer] You should receive a 30 day 'visa on arrival' .
If you are staying less than 30 days you do not need a tourist visa , and you could always get the voa extended by 7 further days at a locla immigration office.
It is possible that the may ask for proof of onward travel , but not a certainty , and I would say unlikely .
From the stories I am hearing about the Cambodian Border , there is always some way around this [for a price]
This depends on which border you will be crossing. Malaysia isn't a problem, in fact it's the easiest. Myanmar and Laos are fine too but as Chang Fai said the Cambodian officials can make life very awkward so don't argue just throw them some cash and get it over with as quickly as you can.

Just on a technicallity the "30 day stamp" available to visitors from up to 43 countries is not a visa..or a VOA, it is an agreement with those countries to allow tourist to stay for up to 30 WITHOUT a visa.
On leving the Kingdom and re-entering you will be issued with another 30 day stamp....You are only allowed 3 such visits within a stated period (which I don't have to hand).

How many days you get stamped in your passport depends on the country you are a citizen of.
If you are from the U.S., Canada or the UK you can get a 30 day permission stamp in your passport.
Above link has info for other countries.
