Widely regarded as one of the most successful tourism campaigns of its kind, the ‘Best Job in the World’ broke new ground in creative marketing and attracted unprecedented levels of national and international coverage. With 35,000 applications from over 200 countries, the campaign generated more than $430 million in publicity for Queensland.
