So I bit the bullet and leaving the wet and miserable UK behind and heading out to OZ in the New year!

I'm a solo female traveller arriving in Brisbane on 23rd January on a WHV and going to try and find a fruit picking job for beginning of February so I can get it out of the way and get my second year visa. I don't mind where is do this though

Wondering if there is anyone out there looking to do the same thing?

I'm 25 and already done quite a bit of travelling, I went travelling last year for a year but never stayed in one place for more than 2 weeks.

I love to party and always like to make the most of my time away.

If any one has similar plans or looking for a travelling buddy let me know, as it would be nice to have some company to do the fruit picking and travel with afterwards.

Get in touch if your interested :)

I'm doing exactly the same thing!

I land in Sydney Jan 30th and looking to start fruit picking asap, to get it out the way! would be great to do it with a few other people (already chatting to some others who are looking to do it the same time).

add me on fb from my profile to chat if you like.

Hi Kym!

Just seen your post now whilst search for info on fruit picking jobs. I've already left the rainy UK and am hoping to start fruit picking in Feb also.

I'm currently a couple of hours north of Sydney, but also don't really mind where I work.

My fb is - add me if you want to see if we can make plans/share tips!

Hi Kym,

I'm 22 year old male from Malaysia but studying in Newcastle, NSW. Now I'm having a 6 months break and looking for fruit picking/farm work around Australia, but I find it hard to get infos. If you don't mind please share with me ;) And it will be great if I can join you as well since I've got nothing to do. My fb;
