Tourism Queensland is seeking applicants for the job as caretaker on Hamilton Island in the Great Barrier Reef.
You will live-in with flexible working hours. Key responsibilities include exploring the islands of the Great Barrier Reef to discover what the area has to offer and report back via weekly blogs, photo diary, video updates and ongoing media interviews. [Ed: Hey, blogging, pictures, video updates.. That's me! They're talking about me!]
Other duties may include (but are not limited to):
- Feed the fish (over 1,500 species of fish living in the Great Barrier Reef but don't worry, you won’t need to feed them all)
- Clean the pool (like "if you happen to see a stray leaf floating on the surface")
- Collect the mail
More info and applications welcome here.
[Ed: OK, I'm outta here. This blog will not be updated for the next 6 months. Byeee!]
