Position: Island caretaker. Duties: Lazing around Australia's Great Barrier Reef for six months. Salary: $100,000.
It sounds too good to be true, but it's for real. Billing it the "Best Job in the World," Queensland state tourism officials say they are seeking one lucky person to spend six months on Hamilton Island, while promoting the destination on a blog.
Within 24 hours, more than 200,000 prospective applicants had clicked onto the website islandreefjob.com.
While the advertisement is a publicity stunt by tourism officials, the job is genuine. Applicants must submit a 60-second video application, and 11 finalists will be flown to Hamilton Island in May for the final selection process.
The employee will be required to stroll the island's white sand beaches, snorkel -- and post photos and videos of his or her experiences on a weekly blog.
