Best job in the world

Is your calendar free for six months starting July 1,2009?

Interested in lazing around Australia’s Great Barrier Reef… and here’s the kicker…getting paid for it?!

No kidding. This is the real deal (Globe and Mail article). Queensland tourism is looking to hire one lucky person to be the caretaker of Hamilton Island. The salary is $105,000US and all you’ve got to do is promote the island by writing about your experiences and posting photos to a blog.

The response to the job offer has been so big that yesterday the Australian tourism website crashed.

Here’s the link to the job offer website if they ever get it up and running again – www.islandreefjob.com
