Hey I'm Alasdair, I'm 18 years old and have a year out until I hopefully go to university next year and so I'm planning to travel around Australia working harvest jobs, though at the present it's not really financially viable. The main problem is transport will cost a bomb (planning on either buying or renting a car), and so I'll need some others to travel with, since my friends have other plans or don't have the finances. I'd prefer someone near my age but I'm not fussed.
We'll most likely be staying in hostels and doing fruit picking and such, whatever we can get really. Another option is if there is some sort of company that will start you off on a harvest trail with others, I'd like to hear about that. Anyway, I'm sure it'll be a blast.
