If you were mainly UK based when you incurred the debt and you left for Australia recently (within the last 6 months I believe) you could try an IVA, if that was the best route for you in regard to all of your circumstances. Other than that, and the less "red taped" plan would be to arrange a debt management plan -- again, depending on the circumstances, you can either do this yourself, or get a firm to do it for you. Payplan do these without charges (they get paid by the creditors) other firms will charge a fee.

Much will depend on the amount of debt, the number of creditors and your available funds.

A formal debt solution like an IVA or bankruptcy could have an effect on your residency status in Australia if you are there on a visa, so this should be checked first.
