Chris Hemsworth has a dream job, and we aren’t talking about his work as a Hollywood superhero.
Instead, the job we’re jealous over is his role as a Tourism Australia ambassador, because it looks like it comes with some seriously cool perks.
Hemsworth, along with wife Elsa Pataky and a crew of their closest friends, have been busy over the last view days sharing stunning photos to Instagram from their travels to Australia’s Great Barrier Reef.
The group stayed at the private island resort Orpheus Island Lodge, a boutique property surrounded by small reefs near the country’s mainland, in celebration of the actor’s 34th birthday. There, the group went rock climbing, paddle boarding, snorkeling, and appeared to have plenty of beach fun.
The stunning photos of Hemsworth and his handsome crew are exactly why the tourism board hired him in the first place.
“Personal photos shared by Chris enjoying quality family time against iconic backdrops such as Uluru, the Kimberley, the Whitsundays and The Great Barrier Reef are tourism gold for us,” Tourism Australia’s managing director John O’Sullivan told the Courier Mail. “We chose him for his authenticity and genuine passion for his country, which always comes across strongly in the postings of Australia which he shares with his millions of fans and followers around the world.”
Beyond sharing their private island retreat on social media, the group also shared a few photos of their equally glamorous private transportation, including a chartered jet and helicopter.
“Cheers to @avminaircharter for always giving us the smoothest ride out there,” Hemsworth captioned a shot of his crew standing in front of a bright red helicopter.
And while traveling to Australia like Hemsworth can be done, it won’t come cheap: A one-night stay at Orpheus Island will set you back about $2,300. However, the island’s impeccable views, world-class dining experience, and once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a close encounter with the Great Barrier Reef make it well worth the travel investment.
