Explore your own backyard and travel across Australia with work in regional communities by following the harvest trail. Whether it’s picking apples, grapes or lychees; packing pumpkins, onions or pears; or doing both with more than 20 other fruits and vegetables, there is work somewhere in Australia in every month of the year.
The work does not require a qualification and can involve long hours of labour, often outside.
But it will pay workers’ way around the country and they can take time before or after an assignment to enjoy leisure activities in the area. As many foods are harvested in warmer weather, it could resemble a year-long endless summer.
