I want a job that going to push me to be better and give me new and exciting challenges. The problem: I am REALLY not keen on the defence force. What are some other ideas out there?

I recently read a book written by an officer in the Marine Corps that said he joined because that was the only job these days where one could slay dragons. It really resonated with me. I want to be challenged intellectually, physically and emotionally. At the moment I am in the process of applying for the police and have been interested in policing for some time (studied criminology at Uni). However, the application process has dragged and the longer it takes the more I feel compelled to move some of my eggs out of the metaphorical basket. I am definitely more academic than physical (though I am working at my fitness for the police) and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions into other careers I should look at. My parents would kill me if I joined the military, but any other ideas that are preferably do-able in Australia I'm willing to consider.
