The best job in the world

Remember when Australia gave away the best job in the world a couple of years ago? The job in which the employee had to take care of a deserted island, which included an enormous paycheck and the opportunity to live on a deserted island? Remember that? It was a huge success, and that's why Tourism Australia is repeating it by giving away six dream jobs all over the continent of Australia. You like?

This time they are looking for six different people with different skills, but they will all get the same $50.000,- paycheck and in addition to that $50,000,- worth of housing, technology and other items. I bet you are interested? The job descriptions are as followed:

Are you the next Chief Funster, who will visit various festivals and events in New South Wales? It's your job to tweet, tag and post your thoughts about these events on social media and possibly a blog. It's a tough job, but someone's gotta do it, right?

Are you a photographer and do you like to discover new trends and hidden secrets in Melbourne? The position of Lifestyle Photographer is still vacant. Take amazing photos and encounter local designers and artists. You will write articles, shoot pictures & make videos of everything there is to do in this amazing city. Melbourne will be your playground.

When you are a real adventurer (or a backpacker ;-) ) you could apply for the amazing position of Outback Adventurer. For a period of 6 months you'll be travelling through the Outback, meeting locals and discovering new adventures. Sleep under the stars and experience the free life in the Outback of Australia. Sounds great, right?

Queensland Australia is still looking for a suitable Park Ranger, and you could be that person. It's your job to protect and promote the beautiful nature in Australia: plants, rainforests, waterfalls, you name it. Oh, I almost forgot to mention the Great Barrier Reef... Do you want Mother Nature to be your next boss? This is the job for you.

Do you love food and do you love to travel? Look no further, because you are the ultimate Taste Master. You will eat your way around Western Australia, discovering new products, dishes and chefs. It's your job to look for the best restaurants and bars and eat the finest delicacies. Also, they'll teach you how to brew beer and make wine.

The last vacancy is the Wildlife Caretaker. Are you an outdoors person and do you like to work with animals? This is the perfect job for you. You'll be responsible for the wildlife: wake up between the kangaroos, swimming with dolphins and explore kangaroo island.

Are you interested in one of the six best jobs in the world? Apply here before the 10th of April 2013.
