Your new job?

From the Beeb's Asia-Pacific newsdesk:

Tourism officials in Australia are describing it as "the best job in the world".

They want someone to work on a tropical island off the Queensland coast.

No formal qualifications are needed but candidates must be willing to swim, snorkel, dive and sail.

In return, the successful applicant will receive a salary of A$150,000 ($103,000, £70,000) for six months and get to live rent-free in a three-bedroom villa, complete with pool.

What's the catch? Well, you have to live on Hamilton Island, which is not the most interesting island in the Whitsunday Group, but that seems like a small sacrifice.

If this sounds like the job for you, get your CV in soon. Read more at the link above.

It's a crafty tourism ad. End result should be: 'Where the bloody hell did they all come from?'

Do you think they might have to build a second runway?

Must say that Hamilton is looking very green in the photo on the BBC site. I remember it being a bit crunchier than that.
