The Best Job in the World

Queensland, Australia is looking for someone to live on Hamilton Island of the Great Barrier Reef for six months and keep a blog telling the world why they should visit.
There’s so much to see and do, so you’ll have plenty to write about in your weekly blog. And with so much life above and below the water, you’re sure to capture some entertaining moments for your video diary and photo gallery. To keep you busy, Tourism Queensland will organise a schedule of travel and events on the Islands of the Great Barrier Reef. Your schedule could include sampling a new luxury spa treatment at qualia on Hamilton Island, trying out new snorkelling gear on Heron Island, or bushwalking on Hinchinbrook Island.

The job includes use of a three-bedroom home near the beach with a pool, and pays $150,000 Australian. You must send a video to apply for the position. Watch videos of other applicants at the website. Link -via Metafilter

What's the catch? Do I have to have a full head of hair and a clear complexion with a pleasant voice? Do i have to be photogenic enough for tv?

Wow. Most people would do that without the $150k. Add that in, and they're sure to have plenty of applicants to choose from. But at the moment of this comment, that website is down. Too much traffic I suppose.

This sounds so awesome! I really doubt I have a chance as a 26 year old IT-tech guy though... they'll probably want.. hawt chix? Will be interesting to read more though, whenever the site revives.

Uh, yeah, I think you guys have just posted an ad ... for free. They followed me on Twitter today and I blocked them for being spammy.

Looks like they're looking for a very outgoing, dynamic, super yay!!!-type person based on the short list interview process (activities may include team-building exercises and that sort of crap).

Introverts who just want to get away and like to write probably need not apply.

yeah.. that'd be a pretty good job. i live about 2.5hrs away from Hamilton Island and i can tell you it's a GREAT place to visit. The worst part is $150,000AUD is only like a couple of hundred USD...
