IMAGINE being coaxed to sleep each night by the soothing sound of rolling waves.
For Emma Perrin, 22, this dream is a reality, and she believes being employed by Southern Great Barrier Reef Resorts gives her the title of best job in town.
"The best part of my job is the location," she said.
"We have amazing beaches, Lady Musgrave Island right on our doorstep, and I get to show couples, families and travellers what's so special about our amazing region".
Having the title of on-site manager for two resorts and a backpackers in Agnes Water provides Ms Perrin with the challenge and reward of ensuring no two days are the same.
"My tasks vary every day," she said. "Everything from setting the resort up, to rebranding and even off-site training opportunities in places like Fraser Island".
Ms Perrin wants to claim the official title of Best Job in Town - and you can enter the Gladstone Observer competition too.
Not only does the winner earn bragging rights about having the most enviable job in Gladstone, but also a $1000 Flight Centre voucher.
"If I did win the prize, it would go towards seeing my long-distance boyfriend," Emma said.
"We've spent about $15,000 in the last year on flights alone to see each other".
