Do you remember the Best Job in the World campaign from 2009? The one that offered one lucky individual the chance to get paid £70,000 to live on a tropical island in the Great Barrier Reef somewhere off the coast of Queensland.
The only requirements being that the successful candidate must be — and this is important — willing to swim, snorkel, dive and sail. In whichever order they want. Whenever they want.
Sounds great, right? Well imagine if it was back. But instead of one job for one person on one island, there are six jobs, in six states, for six people.
Well, it’s back.
Tourism Australia has six incredible jobs up for grabs – each with a six-month contract and salary package worth AUD $100,000 (£65k). If you’re successful, you could be paid to live a life most people can only dream of, working in one of six extraordinary areas of Australia.
Your daily duties could include waking-up kangaroos, taste-testing boutique beer and wine, patrolling pristine beaches or sleeping in a swag under the stars in the Outback.
Coming up, we’ll tell you exactly how you could be spending your days down under, if you land one of the Best Jobs in the World.
