DescriptionFollowing the success of their “best job in the world” campaign, Australian tourism officials have launched a new initiative to lure bored Brits Down Under for the ultimate working holiday.

Jobs on offer include beer tasting, tagging sharks and catching koalas, as well as a Fairy Penguin home remodeller, and a “roo poo” harvester.

Targeted at Brits aged 18-30, the initiative by the South Australian government is advertising a range of seasonal jobs that promise a “stark contrast to the UK’s long working hours, high taxes and increasing retirement age”.
