"Best Job In The World" Winner Announced

Tourism Queensland's promotion has come to an end after a 5 month search. As you might recall from previous posts the state run site was offering up what was billed as the "best job in the world". The job, Island Caretaker of the Islands of the Great Barrier Reef will net a lucky chap from the UK $100k for his services.

Ben Southall from United Kingdom has secured The Best Job in the World. He'll spend his time lounging around on his own tropical island doing little more than blogging, interviews with the local press and occasionally feeding the fish.

Ben was chosen from more than 34,000 applicants for the Best Job in the World after a selection process that culminated on beautiful Hamilton Island. Today Ben was offiically handed the keys to his new home - the gorgeous Blue Pearl villa overlooking the Coral Sea and his base from which to explore Queensland's magnificent Islands of the Greaat Barrier Reef.
