SYDNEY (AFP) – An Australian state is offering internationally what it calls "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 winner'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, snorkel the reef, take care of "a few minor tasks" -- and report to a global audience via weekly blogs, photo diaries and video updates.

The successful applicant, who will stay rent-free in a three-bedroom beach home complete with plunge pool and golf buggy, must be a good swimmer, 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.

"The fact that they will be paid to explore the islands of the Great Barrier Reef, swim, snorkel and generally live the Queensland lifestyle makes this undoubtedly the best job in the world."


i stumbled upon this news while surfing last night. hey! this is really a good job offer, the best. u just need to love the sea the sun n outdoors. good command in english n good swimmer. and the best part is ......... u are to blog about ur lazing around weekly and talk to media once in a while.

and you will be paid USD105K for 6 months!!!!

frens, apply lah.... take unpaid leave kalau accepted. u balik kaya!!!! mana taknya, USD105K convert ke RM jadi lebih kurang RM300K sebulan. kalau 6 bulan, balik jadi jutawan beb...

or is it just USD105K for six months? but what the heck, it is still about RM50K sebulan.. duduk kat pulau, snorkeling, bercanda di pasiran pantai (lagu sudirman ngan anita sarawak) ambik gambar, report dalam blog and sekali-sekala diinterbiu........ just imagine ..... after breakfast, jalan kat pantai. petangnya snorkeling atau swimming. pastu sedia bahan untuk diblog..

jom isi form.....kekosongan jawatan adalah untuk 10 orang! tapi i tak pandai berenang.... he he he
