The role of Island Caretaker is a six-month contract, based on luxurious Hamilton Island in the Great Barrier Reef. It's a live-in position with flexible working hours and key responsibilities that include exploring the Islands of the Great Barrier Reef to discover what the area has to offer. You'll be required to report back on your adventures to Tourism Queensland headquarters in Brisbane (and the rest of the world) via weekly blog posts, photo diary, video updates, and ongoing media interviews. Our offer is a unique opportunity to help promote the wondrous Islands of the Great Barrier Reef.
Since this job description shared an uncanny resemblance to the past eight months of my life - traveling and blogging - I thought I had nothing to lose in applying. All applicants are required to make a one-minute video explaining why they would make the best Island Caretaker. So I bit the bullet, got a monkey suit, an Australian flag, and went to town.

It's also really fun to watch one of the thousands of one-minute application videos from across the world. You can even search by country (the Russians are my personal favorite). It's neat to see so many random people across the world who would never otherwise make a connection through this process. You can find their videos at the contest website: www.islandreefjob.com
