Australia offers 'best job in world' on paradise island
Tue Jan 13, 1:53 AM


SYDNEY (AFP) - An Australian state has launched a global search for candidates for "the best job in the world" -- earning a top salary for lazing around a beautiful tropical island for six months.

The job pays 150,000 Australian dollars (105,000 US dollars) and includes free airfares from the successful applicant's home country to Hamilton Island on the Great Barrier Reef, Queensland's state government announced on Tuesday.

In return, the "island caretaker" will be expected to stroll the white sands, soak up the sun, snorkel the reef, "maybe clean the pool" -- and report to a global audience via weekly blogs, photo diaries and video updates.

The winner, who will stay rent-free in a multi-million dollar three-bedroom beach home complete with plunge pool and golf buggy, must be an excellent communicator and be able to speak and write English.

"They'll also have to talk to media from time to time about what they're doing so they can't be too shy and they'll have to love the sea, the sun, the outdoors," said acting state Premier Paul Lucas.

No thanks. Sounds like a lot of work. Between walking, writing, taking pictures, when would you have any time for yourself?

I suppose I could force myself to endure paradise for a year. If they let me build a stocked private bar, they just might have to forcibly remove me after the year is up.
Go Cowboys!
