Australia Offers "Best Job in the World"

What do you say to a six-month vacation on a beautiful tropical island in Australia, rent-free accommodation in a three-bedroom beach home complete with plunge pool and golf buggy, free airfares from your home country and 150,000 Australian dollars (USD $105,000)?

An Australian state is offering just that. All you need to do is take care of the island, stroll the white sands, snorkel the reef and take care of a few minor tasks — and report to the world via weekly blogs, photo diaries and video updates.
