BIANCA Busteed plans on taking on the world.

But before she "acts the grown up" she brought all her friends together with a Where's Wally-themed party.

Celebrating her 18th on Saturday night at the Gladstone Bowls Club, she asked what was better than an "old school" get together.

"I'm a big family person," she said.

And they are close. Her sister Kimberley, well known as a former Miss Universe Australia, flew from London for just 24 hours, long enough to join the celebrations before jetting out again.

In a speech at the party, Kimberley said she was incredibly proud of younger sister.

"The little baby of the family is turning 18," she said.

"You're kind-hearted and beautiful. Keep yourself tidy tonight."

Bianca said they would be hitting the clubs after dinner and cake.

"I want to go and experience the 18-year-old life," she said.

"We'll keep it classy!"

She has two jobs, at Woolworths in Gladstone Square (the valley) and at Port Curtis Medical Centre, to save as much money as possible to travel.

"I want to travel and experience things," she said. "I'm a bit of a scaredy cat so I'll probably take a friend with me."

OMG it's all about cakes put together Bianca's impressive Where's Wally cake.
