Hi All

Alex here from UK. Im really keen to try fruit picking and travel Australia. Is it really as easy of just getting the visa sorted and going for it? Anything I should be looking out for??

Also, would be cool to meet some people interested in doing it too!

Thanks :D

Hi Alex,

I'm also interested in fruit picking! I arrive in Melbourne on 7th November. Plan to do 5 weeks then I'm booked into Sydney for Christmas and New Years. After New Years I have no plan and would be happy to do the 3 months of fruit picking then :)

What are your plans?

Thats awesome! I really don't have any plans as yet, but I am really keen to sort it out. What will you be doing when you get there??

I want to go fairly soon so Im just reading up about it. Might just apply for a Visa and do it (Not think too much and talk myself out of it lol)

Yeah that is kind of what I did. I talked about it for so long that I just needed to book it lol Visa took a matter of days to come through so that was handy!!

Haven't looked into getting it organised tbh, but would be good to know more. I get the impression that its pretty physical and hard work :/, but will be worth it to have the option to stay out there 2years.
