(Probably) The Best Job In The World

No not a Carlsberg video...Reuters reports that a website advertising the "best job in the world" has crashed due to the massive amount of interest and applications it has been inundated with.

"The job, which offers a salary of $105,000 to spend six months on the Great Barrier Reef island of Hamilton, has been inundated with hundreds of thousands of prospective candidates."

If you're not tempted yet, read on for more details...

"Duties for the job include feeding ocean fish, cleaning a pool and collecting deliveries of mail that arrive by plane. The successful candidate will have to go scuba diving, snorkeling and hiking and enjoy at least 25 nearby island resorts."

"Thrown in is a luxury three-bedroom home and transportation to and from the island.No skills, nor experience is needed, and there is no age requirement. The job starts in July."

To apply head to

I'll stick with my paradise in Thailand for now but good luck to all applicants, as and when you get onto the website.

The job was created in response to the global economic decline to promote Australia and it comes after September 2008's London-based speed dating event with Australian men to tempt British women to move down-under.

Great creativity from those Aussies.
