First call several of the airlines that you think you would use and ask them the names of 2 or 3 of there consolidators. Then call them and compare. I'm in New York and I am pretty sure that I could get a cheaper fare than you stated from here. Though it depends on the travel dates.Make sure that you use a reputable consolidator and a credit card. I use one here all the time to go to Thailand.
Austraila is a wonderful country to travel I spent 3 months there and it wasn't enough!
Good Luck, Joanne New York, USA
