'Best job' finalist strips off in Times Square

She has stripped down to a bikini in chilly Times Square, chanted Aussie, Aussie, Aussie in Tokyo and set up a makeshift beach at London's Big Ben.

Now Hailey Turner, Queensland's finalist in the Best Job in the World contest, is back in Brisbane after a whirlwind trip around the globe.

The 20-year-old is among the top 50 vying for Tourism Queensland's Best Job in the World contest.

The winner will be caretaker of Hamilton Island - one of the jewels of the Whitsundays and part of the Great Barrier Reef.

Ms Turner said she would spend her last day of campaigning in the Brisbane CBD.

"It's been hard work, but this job is particularly about promoting the islands of the Great Barrier Reef to visitors from other countries," she said.

The BBC is filming a documentary with her and four of the other applicants.

The top 50 were selected from more than 34,000 applicants but now it is up to the public to cast their votes at www.islandreefjob.com based on each candidate's video blog.

Eleven candidates with the most votes will then undergo a job interview.

Ms Turner is banking on her stunts to win more public votes - the Brisbane IT worker is so far placed 30th with 2247 votes.

Voting ends at 10am (AEST) on Wednesday.
