But whoever takes up the dream role will have to put up with limited electricity and water, Marine Park Authority’s Dr Mark Read said.

‘The caretakers live in paradise on a tropical island surrounded by the Great Barrier Reef — but maintaining an island is hard work and remote island living means limiting electricity and water use which may not suit everyone,’ he said.

‘The caretakers are involved in everything from maintaining buildings and infrastructure including the solar power system and sewerage treatment system, liaising with tourist operators, cleaning toilets, managing weeds and grounds works, and counting bird populations like the pied imperial pigeons.

‘We’re seeking people with a passion for sustainability and natural heritage, experience in maintaining infrastructure and who aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty and live remotely.’ 

Submissions for the position as caretaker of Low Isles (pictured) closes on Friday September 25
