Thousands Jump On Palaszczuk's "Work In Paradise" Program
Four thousand sign ups
Just hours after Queensland Annastacia Palaszczuck revealed 'Work in Paradise' - more than four-thousand Aussies have already signed up to work and play up here.
Tourism Minister Stirling Hinchliffe says in good news 65% of the applications are from people outside the Sunshine State.
He says it's a fantastic opportunity - particularly for those keen for an adventure - who can't travel overseas right now.
"We are encouraging people to see it as a chance to have an adventure, a chance to have a different experience. We're even encouraging groups of friends to do it togeher..The idea of being motivated in your workday by being in paradise, by being in a beautiful part of North Queensland for instance, why wouldn't you?
Starting on the first of July, the ‘Work in Paradise’ campaign will offer $1500 and free travel to anyone who will take up a tourism job across the state.
