Put fruit picking in Australia or NSW or where ever you want into google and there is a site that will tell you where to go when for what fruit. The other thing is Centre Link (Aus Gov employment offices) will have the little interactive job search monitors in the office and you can ask the staff in there and they will look it up for you. There's plenty of fruit picking. It's bad job though and really bad pay.
If you can get on to Apple thinning in Batlow over the summer it's pretty good. Not heavy or hard. You just have to knock the extra one off and leave the healthy looking ones.
Lemon picking is really bad!

also have a look in magazine called TNT and british balls. they have ads in the backpages for fruitpicking. hye fruitpicking isnt that bad and beats working in an office! u meet some fab people, see real australia and get out of the backpacker trap of sydney/ melbourne.
