The Low Isles, off of Port Douglas, is seeking a full-time resident.
2020 has been a tough year, and, due to Coronavirus restrictions, you can't even take a nice holiday for some much-needed respite. But what if you could work in an isolated paradise?
The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority are looking for someone to care for the Low Isles, an island off of Port Douglas.
If you are given the job, you would work and reside full-time on the secluded tropical island in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. Although, it may be too much for some, as the advertisers warn that it is not easy work.
“The caretakers live in paradise on a tropical island surrounded by the Great Barrier Reef — but maintaining an island is hard work and remote island living means limiting electricity and water use which may not suit everyone,” said Marine Park Authority Assistant Director Reef Conservation Actions, Dr Mark Read.
In the listing, Dr Mark Read, explains that the caretakers play an important role in protecting, preserving and educating the values of the island.
“The caretakers are involved in everything from maintaining buildings and infrastructure including the solar power system and sewerage treatment system, liaising with tourist operators, cleaning toilets, managing weeds and grounds works, and counting bird populations like the pied imperial pigeons"
Applicants should be ready to throw themselves wholeheartedly into maintaining the Low Isles, even if that means limiting electricity and water usage.
“We’re seeking people with a passion for sustainability and natural heritage, experience in maintaining infrastructure and who aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty and live remotely.”
Sound like you? Apply here until September 25, 2020.
