Sixteen hopefuls have been flown to Daydream Island in Australia for the finals of the Best Job in the World competition.

From 15 countries, they flew to Hamilton Island in Queensland on Sunday to take part in the selection process for the Au73,885 six-month contract as caretaker of the islands of the Great Barrier Reef.

The 16 - including Britain's Ben Southall and Ireland's George Karellas - enjoyed a luxurious spa treatment courtesy of Tourism Queensland in a break from their jam-packed four-day schedule.

The tourism body's boss, Anthony Hayes, said: "The candidates have been going pretty much non-stop for the past three days, so the pampering of Daydream Island's world-renowned spa is a treat they certainly deserved.

"This selection process has involved assessing how the candidates endure the rigours of constant activity and media scrutiny, but experiencing the Islands of the Great Barrier Reef is also about luxury.

"And with the announcement of the successful candidate tomorrow, I'm sure today's activity helped ease any last-minute jitters."

The candidates finished the day writing blogs about their experiences and on Wednesday will have a final morning of private interviews with the selection panel before the announcement of the successful candidate.
