Having spent eleven months touring Australia in a vintage Winnebago we can vouch for the fact that all four corners of Australia provide diverse environments to explore. As a tourist you often find yourself dreaming of starting a new life in the countries you visit, but what if your dream could become a reality?

The Australian Tourism Board think they could help you out and are offering everyone the opportunity to apply for one of the six employment opportunities they deem the ‘Best Job In The World’. Each Australian state is offering one lucky individual the chance to make their dreams a reality and leave the confines of a cubicle desk for a shall we say ‘more exciting’ way to earn a living. With a salary of AUD$100,000 why not apply for a life changing job today?

Tourism Australia Managing Director Andrew McEvoy said “We’ve taken one of the most successful tourism campaigns in recent times – “Best Job in the World” – and made it bigger and better by coming up with a competition which represents the very best of our country – our breath-taking landscapes and scenery, our unique nature and wildlife, great food and wine and, of course, our huge sense of fun,”

    That is such an amazing opportunity. My dream job would either be lifestyle photographer or a wildlife caretaker. What’s yours?
