Unsurprising really, considering a working holiday is the best way to make the cash on your pre-paid travel card go further.

The job, as it happens, went to young Englishman Ben Southall, who also became the focus of a BBC documentary about the competition.

This year, brewer Carlton and United (CUB) has advertised a winter version of the Best Job in the World, which will see two lucky Aussies taking guided tours across the Victorian snowfields this June, July and August.

CUB said the two Falls Creek ambassadors must be "up for having a good time" and "enjoy having a beer or two".

Andrew Meldrum, general manager of marketing for Carlton Dry, said: "We're giving two Aussies the chance to live the dream this winter, getting paid for carving up the slopes."

The lucky applicants will even be given $200 per day to top up their pre-paid travel cards with.
