Mice Net : June 2009
islands. 74 1 spectacular business event destination. isLand T Caretaker Chosen ‘Best Job in the world’ 2009 is one of the most exciting times in Hamilton Island’s history - not only will the island see the unveiling of two new world-class developments - the Golf Club and Yacht Club, but Hamilton Island is also the host destination for what has become a major international event. ourism Queensland’s `Best Job In The World’ campaign was launched in January this year and attracted an overwhelming response both at an international and national level. After receiving over 34,000 applicants for the role of Island Caretaker to the Great Barrier Reef, the list was narrowed down to just 16 finalists who stayed on Hamilton Island in early May for the final selection process and announcement. A media contingent of more than 60 from Australia and around the world travelled to the island to follow the candidates’ every move. Over the course of the four days, the 16 candidates participated in numerous activities around the Whitsundays designed to test their abilities for the role including snorkelling, boating, cooking and even artistic endeavours. The islands were buzzing with excitement and Hamilton certainly had its share of TV coverage! The successful candidate for the island caretaker was announced on May 6 - Ben Southall, a 34-year-old charity event manager from the UK. Ben will now live on Hamilton Island for six months from July as the “Caretaker of the Islands” of the Great Barrier Reef. So, come and visit us and you might see Ben performing his duties as the winner of this world famous promotion! Visit www.islandreefjob.com for further details.
