Willing to live six months in isolation on a remote island with no net connectivity? If this is a challenge you are looking for, you now have the chance to really make it happen with your partner. Tasmania which is a remote island off the course of Australia, is offering people, especially couples a chance to take care of one of its remote islands called Maatsuyker Island, for a period of six months. The Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service are looking for volunteers to take care of this island and for safety reasons, want couples or two individuals for the job. Their ideal volunteers should be healthy, self-sufficient, should be able to carry out caretaking services like maintenance of buildings, grounds, plants and equipment. They should also be able to work in remote conditions as there will be no TV or net connection on the island.

The volunteers would be responsible for their own food and entertainment as they would be isolated on the island and supplies will only be replenished after three months. They will also be given training to make weather observations for the Bureau of Meteorology and will be paid for doing so. The stay period is either from March to September or September to March. The couples who come here will call an ancient lighthouse keeper’s house their home for the six months they are here. ALSO SEE 15 most beautiful islands in the world
