Finding seasonal work and farm work


Fruit picking jobs are mainly relevant to those on a Working Holiday Visa. Most fruit picking jobs that are available as part of the Working Holiday Visa are seasonal or temporary, and require neither skills nor specific experience. Working Holiday Visa jobs are generally paid the minimum wage (AUD 16.87 per hour in Australia, NZD 14.25 per hour in New Zealand). Salaries can be lower in rural areas but workers often benefit from discounted accommodation and meals.
