Back in 2009 Ben Southall won what was branded the Best Job In The World.

He was paid to live on an island in Queensland and evangelise all things Queensland and by default Australia. The campaign was a social media phenomenon, far exceeding expectations of its reach and impact on Australia as a destination.

In 2013 the campaign has returned on a larger scale. With the exception of Tasmania and the Australian Capital Territory, the States and Territories of Australia are joining forces of sorts to each offer the 'Best Jobs In The World'.

The lure of $100,000 and an interesting job is bound to get plenty more people excited about or at least thinking about travelling to Australia.
