So who applied for the job

A $150,000 salary for six months work, free accommodation in a $9,800 a week three bedroom house on Hamilton Island, free airfares and traveling expenses. And what do you have to do???? help clean the pool and tell everyone how nice the Whitsundays and The Great Barrier Reef are.

The Best Job In The World

The site had 2 million hits in a week Barbara so I guess there will be plenty going for it. It's a nice place in the world, we have lived in this area all our lives

I have always wanted to go to Australia. I don't think we are what they are looking for, unfortunately! But someday I do plan to visit.

I saw that and thought immediately, "I'd be sooooo bored, so quickly": one mans heaven is another's hell. (lol)

I was wondering if they get visitors. Could you imagine going all that way and finding no one home.

Looks like a fantastic job but the commute is a killer.
