The group were camping at Princetown, near the famous Twelve Apostles in Victoria, when he went missing.

The body was found in a creek just over half a mile from where Mr King was last seen.

A statement from Victoria Police said: “Officers are yet to formally identify the body; however, it is believed to be Aslan King who was last seen at a camping ground on Old Coach Road about 2am on November 23.”

A report will be prepared for the coroner.

Mr King, an illustrator from Bristol, had only moved to Australia two weeks before he disappeared.

At the time of his disappearance, The Age reported Mr King had been having some drinks with friends when his face went blank.

His friends tried to restrain him after he appeared to have a seizure but he then ran into bushland.

The young man had previously shared photos and clips from his trip Down Under.

In one video, he can be heard yelling out excitedly during the road trip.

In a statement, the Foreign Office said: “Our staff are seeking further information following the disappearance of a British man near Princeton, Australia, and are in contact with the Australian police.”
