You'd probably find backpackers willing to join you for share of petrol costs although they are tighter than a fish's sphincter when it comes to food in general.

They probably be anticipating one way to cairns and then you may find a passenger there to come back with.

Put up advertising in the backpacker accom in Adelaide and you will get calls.

Ciao for now
Andrew.

Let me guess: Aussie adventurer seeks young backpaker as a travelling companion for long outback trip through rugged australia, no bush knowledge required, just a fine body, preferably blond, from somewhere overseas. Clothing optional??????? HA HA In all seriousness can u imagine the trip. LOL

He doesnt really want a backpacker...
Someone aboard for the whole trip would be better....
Backpackers are normally one way travellers...
Just a normal person with an interest of 4x4's with a basic understanding of it's operation would be nice...

I would love to come, but my mum only gives me $6 a week pocket money - is that enough? I am 6, but have done lots of camping and 4wding, please can I come? I talk heaps, and would be great company, also I don't eat much food (particularly if it is healthy!), so would be relatively cheap to keep? Please, pretty please, my mum would love me to have a great adventure with someone else? -Jack

Don't be prejudicial as to who you will get from the backpackers.

yes - one way is a likely interest, but you might get an ex-Israeli soldier who spent his life driving hummers for the last 3 years (say) who is very interested in 4WDing.

Ciao for now

The last one of those I met was a real intellectual.....claimed that unlike his country we had no culture!! Nearly told him to get ###### but to do so would have only proved his point!

well not all Aussies make good travelling companions either!

Of course it may be an Irishman who has crossed the artic with sled dogs.

(as just two examples of backpacking folks who have accompanied me on trips)
