Hey Brad! If your going to be looking for fruit picking work down the east coast my advice would be to try n book into a working hostel a couple weeks in advance..as long as the weather is good this type of work is usually available depends what type of fruit picking ud like to do, Banana picking is very hard work the bunch's are huge and the guys have to hump them around all day long (isnt fun) but you do meet some great people!! Towns such as Tully, Innisfail have a lot of banana picking work, towns like Bowen, and around Bundaberg have different types of jobs. We passed through Ayr which seemed quite nice...theres a backpackers there called 'Delta backpackers' which help you find fruit picking jobs. Anyways Good luck dude!
