This site has links to lots of jobs and seasonal working opportunities within Australia. The site also contains a link to "Australian Jobsearch" where there is a section that called "Harvest Trail". This section of the website has information on seasons, dates, and vacancies for work picking fruit and veg.

Another place a lot of employers post jobs is on:


Good luck! :)

try wooofing - farm work a few hours a day ni return for accomadation and food and u also get to experience life with the aussies not just the tourists, u have to buy membership n book then u contact the farms - anywhere u want in oz n see if they will take u on - a good way to meet new people n experience somthing different!

hope thats helpful.

If u want money - def do some farm/fruit/vine work in Mildura Victoria cos there is always work going up there, just get quotes from the diff hostels on who has what kinda work and go for hourly pay over contract pay cos u will prob earn more, the contract work somtimes takes the piss.

good luck
