Trying to get across the ditch has pushed some to extreme measures.

Some people are spending huge amounts of money to get back to Australia with reports a family of three booked a private charter plane to Brisbane.

Inflight Charters says the news has generated about 20 calls and 15 emails from people wanting to do the same.

Charter Manager Paul Aston told Heather Du Plessis Allan things are getting busy.

“Certainly today has sort of shown that there’s a demand there, and they're all Australian bound — it’s all Brisbane, Queensland, Sydney, that sort of thing.”
