With two World Heritage sites in their backyard, locals who live and work in Tropical North Queensland get to do some pretty cool things as part of their jobs. Jobs like crocodile keeper, microlight, balloon or helicopter pilot, sky diver, bungy jumper, kayak, fishing or rock art guide, boat skipper or fish tickler (ok, maybe that’s not an official job but it sounds like fun!). It doesn’t really sound like work does it? But it is and these locals get paid to do just that.
We’re going to meet some of these people over the coming months to find out about their cool jobs and whether they live up to ‘dream job’ status. In the meantime, here’s a little teaser of what’s to come as we check out 20 of the coolest jobs in TNQ. Can you work out who is working and who is on holidays?
