Must get to Australia!

I'm looking everywhere for help with this, so I apologise if I have come to the wrong place, but I thought I may as well try.
I am currently in India, and am running out of visa time and season in Goa to work. I have an Australian working visa so need to get there to make use of it, but have no money for a plane ticket.
Is there anyone who is heading to anywhere in Australia or nearby (Indonesia/Malaysia maybe) in the next two months who will also be stopping anywhere in India (or nearby)?
I will do all your cooking and cleaning, and all other work that I can manage, and if it is at all possible will pay you whatever I can manage.
I (hope I) am pleasant, easy going company, and even have my instrument with me and am an accomplished folk/blues guitarist and singer, so can entertain too (but will happily refrain from using it if that is preffered!).
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and consider, any help and advice will be much appreciated (hugely so).
Thanks again,

Re: Must get to Australia!

highly unlikely to find a boat going east before the SW monsoon starts in june.
and even then unlikely from india,some boats do stop in sri lanka on their way to Malaysia,but this has virtually stopped since the red sea became a no go zone.

cochin marina is the place to check,if by chance there is a delivery going,but chances are slim good luck

latest project
