This thread is marked as being about Working Holiday Visa (Australia)


My girfriend and I are flying into sydney in october and hope to travel along the coast towards cairn over about 3 or 4 weeks.

Then we will need to work (November) and are thinking of fruit picking as we hear its hard work but good pay and alot include accomodation? We'd realistically like to work and build up our funds for a few weeks if possible.We would prefer as close to the coast as possible, if possible but arent fussy on where as we will have no tie downs. We both have marine science degrees but is there alot of this sorta work temporary?

My main questions are,

Where is best to look for fruit picking jobs on the East coast?

Does our rough plan sound realistic?

Is fruit picking work easy to come by in November?

Any help or info or tips are much appreciated!!

For fruit picking jobs have a look at the Harvest Trail section of the governments job search website.
