CNN is reporting that a 6 month contract job is up for offer to be caretaker of Hamilton Island in the Great Barrier Reef. The position, which involves "exploring the area to discover what is on offer and to report back weekly via blogs, photo diaries, video updates and media interviews," pays a salary of more than $100,000 and includes "a free home on a palm-fringed island and all the snorkeling you can be bothered with."

If you think you'd like the position, check out the website www.islandreefjob.com, which has more details on the position and how to apply.

I saw this on NZ TV news last night. Certainly beats working in an office 9-5!
