The best job in the world

Posted by Rachel Leigh email

(WFLX) - It's being touted as the greatest job in the world: The Australia's tourism board is looking for an "island caretaker" for Australia's Great Barrier Reef.

The pay is $100,000 for six months of watching whales, feeding turtles or whatever else you'd like to do on a tropical island. You also get to live in a beachfront three-bedroom home.

Queensland is hoping this will help boost tourism. "Word of mouth is really important. You need to hear from fellow travellers what a place is really like. What better way than to pay someone to do that?"

On opening day, the Web site was flooded with about 33 hits a second. Just post a 60-second video explaining why you're the perfect "island caretaker".

The deadline to apply is February 22.
