Queensland Premier Anna Bligh on Thursday announced one lucky person would be drawn at random next month and awarded an all-expenses-paid holiday to the Great Barrier Reef for the rest of the year.

Tourism Queensland decided to extend its hugely successful BestJob in the World campaign, to find Hamilton Island caretaker Ben Southall four mates to help him explore the state in a move anticipated to attract more tourists.

"Six months just isn't enough time to sample everything so we're looking for some mates who can share in the experience with Ben," Bligh said.

"The friends will report back to Ben about their experiences with photos, videos and via a guest blog."

She said anyone could enter and the winner could choose any three friends from all corners of the globe to join them.

Southall beat more than 34,000 applicants to land the coveted 150,000 Australian dollars (125,900 U.S. dollars), six-month tenure as caretaker of Hamilton Island and now has around 150,000 followers on his blog.
