Best Job In The World – Final Top 16

On Friday, April 3, 15 lucky finalists from across the globe received the call from Queensland Tourism Minister Peter Lawlor informing them to get-a-packin’ for their journey to Hamilton Island.

Amongst the 15 finalists are a teacher, students, a receptionist and an actress; all whom will make their way over to Hamilton Island for the final selection process in May for the ‘Best Job In The World‘.

These lucky buggers were selected from thousands of entries world-wide and were cut down to a short-list of 50, before being dissected down further to only 15, plus one wild card entry. Entrants went to great depths to make themselves stand out from the crowd; scuba diving in a tank in Amsterdam, dressing up as a mermaid in downtown Singapore and spruiking at a London pub just to name a few. I’m sure all short-listed candidates find their risky efforts well worth-while now.

Tourism Queensland has estimated the campaign has achieved about $100 million worth of global publicity for Queensland.

The Top 16 will fly to Hamilton Island on May 3 and the successful candidate will be announced on May 6.
