    It requires no academic qualifications, but applicants must be able to swim and have an adventurous attitude.

    The six-month contract comes with a £72,000 salary package, a free three-bedroom house and free flights.

    Bosses say they want the caretaker to promote the island to a global market.

    The only requirement is that he or she keeps a blog of whats going on, a job that should take less than three hours a a week.

    The rest of the time they can go diving, help marine biologists or come up with ideas for new activities for visitors.

    British-based Tourism Queensland spokesman Jonathan Sloan said: This is the best job in the world, theres no question about it.

    The post is being advertised in 18 countries and the successful candidate will be announced in May.
