Hi there, I am going to be flying to Sydney as a lone traveler at the start of August. I really fancy doing fruit picking, but not sure where to do it at this time of the year? Has anyone got any advice on what I should do? Thanks!

Hi there

Be a little bit careful about getting jobs from Gumtree or hostels that promise you work but want a week's rent in advance! Best starting point to find out more is the official Harvest trail site http://www.harvesttrail.org.au/ - it has the different picking seasons around the country so you plan your trip to be in the right place at the right time. Also links through to actual job vacancies.

Good luck
