Brit scoops dream Great Barrier Reef blogging job

Remember that cushy blogging job advertised a few months ago – a six-month, live-in contract to promote the Great Barrier Reef?

A lucky Brit has scooped the job, picked from thousands of applications and a shortlist of 16 finalists.

Ben Southall described himself as “the adventurous, crazy, energetic one” and “practically a fish”, winning over the four-person selection panel in a selection of challenges on Hamilton Island.

Tourism minister Peter Lawlor said that Ben had “excelled in showing a true passion for Queensland” and that he had the ability to grow and maintain a loyal following during the six months contract.
