Where to find jobs for backpackers ?

Australia always needs  fruit pickers. It is hard work and you are normally paid by volume but can be by the hour or week. Tree picking uses ladders and ground picking means lots of bending over which can be hard on the back. The National Harvest Labour Information telephone line is good place to start looking for work 1800 062 332.

This isn’t as glorious and romantic as you might think. Picking fruit and vegetables is absolutely backbreaking work, and not for the light-hearted. Additionally, the money really isn’t that good unless you’re willing to put in a full day of extremely hard labor. It’s also important to remember that this is Australia, and that there isn’t any air conditioning to be had while you’re working in the field.
