Depressed about the global economy, unemployed, or just looking for adventure? Then look no further because a tiny Australian island is offering a dream job, advertising globally to find the right person.

Australian tourism officials are looking for a caretaker for the islands of the Great Barrier Reef.

[Anthony Hayes, CEO Queensland Tourism]:
"This really is the best job in the world. It is a six month contract when you live in this beautiful luxury house, it is probably four or five million dollar house, right on the edge of Hamilton island looking out of the Pacific. We'll pay you 150,000 Australian dollars which is roughly 75,000 Euros for the six month contract and your job in a nutshell is to travel through out the islands of the Great Barrier Reef, experiencing everything that the islands have to offer."

The caretaker will spend six months visiting Hamilton Island promoting tourism through a video blog.

Duties include feeding ocean fish, cleaning a pool and collecting deliveries of mail that arrive by plane.

But the employee is also required to go scuba diving, snorkeling and hiking and to enjoy at least 25 nearby island resorts.

No skills or experience are required for the job that starts in July and there is no age requirement.

Queensland created the job as an antidote to the global economic slump and is advertising in 18 countries including the United States and China.

[Anthony Hayes, CEO Queensland Tourism]:
"I suspect the biggest catch is going to be trying to get rid of them after six months. I suspect somebody will want to stay forever. It is obviously a bit of fun but there is a serious side to it. I think we in the tourism industry are in for a fairly difficult twelve months ahead not just in Australia but worldwide the tourism industry is in for a difficult time. Our role is to try help our industry overcome the difficulties of the next 12 months, protect jobs."

Applicants must submit a one-minute video expressing interest in the Great Barrier Reef, a vast coral reef system that is classed as one of the seven natural wonders of the world.

The campaign has already drawn more than 200 visitors to its website.

Applications are open until the end of February.
