I want to go on a Contiki-style trip while I'm young enough to do so.
However, I looked at Contiki's web site, and found the prices a little bit high. For example, Beaches and Reefs (Start Cairns) is from A$2292 for 14 days, which is A$163 per day.
Are there alternatives that are like Contiki, but are less expensive?
Ideally, I'd like something that is a little bit bogan (doesn't have to be extremely bogan), has a high proportion of people in their twenties or thirties, some of whom are female and single, and located in Australia or somewhere a cheap flight away from Australia (for example Bali in Indonesia).
