Englishman Ben Southall sets out to prove he has the best job in the world - Caretaker of Australia's Great Barrier Reef.
Ben’s job begins at a fast pace: diving and visiting a wildlife park and talking with scientists - leaving girlfriend Bre a bit jealous.
Ben’s job continues: diving the S.S. Yongala, taking part in the big yacht race, and greeting his parents as they visit Hamilton Island.
After catching up with his girlfriend, they ride motorbikes, dive in search of a manta ray, and learn some natural history about Lady Musgrave Island.
Ben's adventure continues: meeting the Kuku Yalanji people, getting a taste of a traditional delicacy, riding horses & shearing sheeps.
In the last episode of his journey, Ben & Bre work with a ranger on a very special task: helping loggerhead turtles.
