Your best bet is around the Murray river - border area - try West near Mildura / Wentworth.

You can find the names and telephone numbers in the yellow pages and online but you would be better off just turning up - if you are mobile and going door to door.

You shouldn't have much trouble but you may have to keep trying for a while - the financial crisis has hit market gardens and orchard growers as well. Still there is a fair bit of work around if you are keen.

Good luck.
