The Best Job in the WORLD

This is super cool and doesn't happen everywhere or everyday. It is the 'Queensland's (North Australia) Best Job in the World' competition which took three months and 34,684 applicants to get to the 16 finalists.

'The successful applicant will get $150,000 and six months to explore the reef and blog about the experience, acting as an international ambassador for Queensland tourism in the process.'!

This is tourism in the 21st century.. very creative! To live in an island for six months and then blog about it.. that's a wow! I remember spending one day in a magical island.. and I can't seem to get it out of my mind till today. I can blog about that day for years to come!

Applicants had to send a video to reflect their outstanding personalities. The chosen finalists wowed everyone and were super impressive.

'Brisbane girl Hailey Turner's 12-day, round-the-world trip to promote Queensland also grabbed attention.

New Zealand TV presenter Clarke Gayford, 32, impressed with his witty blog - as well as swimming with sharks during a media interview.

And physical education teacher Greg Reynen donned flippers and goggles and paraded around central Singapore to show selectors how keen he was for the job.'
