ALTHOUGH Elisa Detrez will step down from the enviable position of Best Job in the World this week, she will forever remain an ambassador for the Sunshine State.

Miss Detrez spoke to The Observer on Tuesday describing finishing her role as Queensland Park Ranger as "very strange".

A new adventure begins for the tourism ambassador on Thursday, when she embarks on a stint visiting other Australian states, beginning with Tasmania.

"I will always remember the Gladstone region as a special place," she said.

"Myella Farm stay was really beautiful, with the red earth and the blue sky, but my highlight was definitely the Great Barrier Reef. Snorkelling at Heron Island was amazing."

Partner Max Coquard is along for the ride, taking time to explore for the next five months.
