Just seen this thread a little bit late perhaps...
I have my WHV and will be flying into Brisbane on the 3/03/14 my plan at the moment is to stay with my brother near Byron but I have heard they dont have much farm work right now. So I will also be keen to jump on board with any suggestions of where to go and I am considering buying a car to make it easier to get around.
If you haven't locked anything in yet please keep me posted!
Contact me when you arrive, I would proba have already started mine by then but you could come join us??
Hey, sorry for jumping in on this thread. I was just wondering if you guys had found fruit picking/farm work ok? I'm flying into Oz on the 22nd Feb and travelling the east coast until the 25th March where I'll end up in Sydney. I'd really like to do my farm work to extend my visa but not sure how easy it will be to find somewhere at that time of year.
I've just stumbled onto this discussion. I'm currently in Sydney and am looking for fruit picking/packing work for Feb. I've been told by the national harvest labour people that there's not much in NSW now without transport so am now looking Victoria or Tasmania way. Victoria should have a lot coming up but it's kinda weather dependent at the mo with the heat. If any of you are keen to join me in Feb that would be great! Rhiannon and Suzy if you're already hear we could try look/go together.
I'll do the rest of my 3 months from April onwards. I'm hoping to do this Coffs Harbour/Byron way or south QLD so again happy to meet up with anyone then.
As for where to find the work i'm not sure. I call the NHL line everyday. There's some stuff on job boards but not sure how legitimate. Have just found a bunch on gumtree through so that's my next port of call. If anyone else knows a gem please let me know.
Hope to see you on a farm or maybe just around for a beer
