If you love the outdoors, look good in khaki and can talk the ears off an emu, you may be interested in applying for what Tourism Australia is dubbing the Best Job in the World.
Actually, between you and me, I think the best job in the world is running Travelife Magazine. No kidding.

But a six-month position as park ranger in Queensland certainly comes close enough -- especially if you like the great outdoors.
THE BEST JOBS IN THE WORLD
Queensland is hunting for a park ranger – and they’re offering a six-month contract and A$100,000 package. This is part of Tourism Australia’s ‘Best Jobs in the World’ campaign.
Australia's Minister for Tourism, Major Events, Small Business and the Commonwealth Games, Jann Stuckey, said Tourism and Events Queensland will offer one of six dream jobs as a tourism ambassador.
Each Australian state involved has selected a ‘job’ which showcases the particular state, and reflects the many and varied tourist experiences available throughout the country.
ONCE IN A LIFETIME NATURE EXPERIENCE
Minister Stuckey said: “The successful Queensland applicant will experience what life is like as a Park Ranger, exploring the state’s natural attractions and reporting back to a global audience.”
This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, in the most vast and spectacular outdoor classroom on earth. No two days will ever be the same.
The campaign is targeting travellers between 18 and 30 years who are eligible for an Australian working holiday visa. Australian residents are also invited to apply.
Applicants will be narrowed down to a shortlist of 150, and then further reduced to 18 finalists from whom the six winners would be chosen.
The successful Queensland candidate is expected to take up the position from 1 August.
