Australia’s Best Expat Jobs in the World competition results have been announced, with six contestants now heading for the best few months of their travelling lives.

The contest, run by the Australian Tourist Board, attracted no less than 330,000 competitors hailing from 196 countries across the world, with all the applicants whittled down to a finalist list. The lucky 18 finalists spent a week in the country taking part in challenges and assignments in fields including photography, social media reports, culinary experiences, adventure and nature-based activities.

American Andrew Smith is New South Wales’s Chief Funster, Allan from Northern Ireland is now an Outback Adventurer in the remote Northern Territories and the new Queensland Park Ranger is Elisa Detrez. Briton Rich Keam gets to be Taste Master in Western Australia, and Brazilian Roberto Seba is Melbourne’s Lifestyle Photographer.

Canadian Greg Snell will spend his time in South Australia as a Wildlife Caretaker, and Virgin Australia has created a seventh ‘best job’ of High Flyer and awarded it to Cameron Erst. Cameron will cover the whole of the massive country by air, recording the carrier’s best customer services experiences.

MD of Tourism Australia Andrew McEnvoy admitted judging the competition had been tough, especially with the 18 finalists, adding that all were to be congratulated on their performances. He thanked all of the 330,000 entrants for their interest, inviting them to try a trip to Australia and see for themselves everything it has to offer.
