Tourism Australia has launched its best job in the world campaign, but rather than having just the one dream job this time they’ve got six picture perfect roles up for grabs.
"We've taken one of the most successful tourism campaigns in recent times – ‘Best Job in the World’ - and made it bigger and better by coming up with a competition which represents our breath-taking landscapes, our unique wildlife, great food and wine and, of course, our huge sense of fun,” says Tourism Australia MD Andrew McEvoy.
First time out in 2009 Englishman Ben Southall scored a gig working as the caretaker of a lush tropical island for six months on a AUD $100,000 contract - the poor guy! This time it could be you with Tourism Australia offering six amazing jobs.
The six roles for which you can be in competition are as follows:
Lifestyle Photographer (Melbourne)
Chief Funster (New South Wales)
Outback Adventurer (Northern Territory)
Park Ranger (Queensland)
Wildlife Caretaker (South Australia)
Taste Master (Western Australia)
If you want to snag the best job and do it for a chunky salary too, then head over to:
