I am a regular traveller. I am, at this time, developing an idea to travel overland, using public buses, trains and ferries, from the UK to Australia, possibly starting late this year. Anyway, it would effectively go through Europe, Turkey, Iran, Pakistan, Tibet, China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia (a foreigner can't go Bangladesh-Myanmar-Thailand overland and would have big visa problems going India-Nepal-Tibet)). It would seem that there aren't any ferries or boats (at least not regular ones) from anywhere in Indonesia, including East Temor, to Australia, which essentially means that I must either fly to Australia from Indonesia - thus meaning it's not all overland, which defeats the objective - or end in Indonesia. Now, considering that, would you prefer to nevertheless fly to Australia and end it there, or end it in Indonesia?
