I've found that applying for the jobs through the agencies and regional harvest offices that advertise on that website is not that great, more often than not. I'd say use the website to get an idea of where to find work at a particular time of year, go there, then find a working hostel nearby and let them find your job. It's harder than it sounds, but after a while, you'll likely become very adept at sniffing out work and other working hostels. You'll gather intelligence on where's good to go from fellow fruit pickers, see. The Aussie and Kiwi 'career' fruit pickers you'll find on farms all over Oz can be invaluable sources of information. Use them. Well, ask the ones that aren't too grumpy.
Like I said, there's good and bad everywhere. You'll find where the good jobs are and where the better work is found, and you'll also meet other backpackers who'll tell you about their experiences elsewhere, and so on. There's also those Aussie and Kiwi 'career fruit pickers.' I mentioned, who travel all over Oz, all year round. They've got low-down on all things fruit, so listen to them. Put - There's no better substitute than getting out there and finding out for yourself. And it can be loads of fun.

Tax for working holiday makers.
It is a complete myth that you will automatically get all your tax back when you leave Australia! There is a lot of confusion out there amongst, not only working holiday backpackers but also amongst many employers and even some accountants and tax agents.
Need a visa for Australia
WHV's can ONLY be applied for; before arriving in Australia. Working Holiday Visa's* can only be granted before you arrive in Australia. For details about applying visit Australia's official website here (www.immi.gov.au) or visit a Travel Agent or an Australian Embassy or Consulate in the country you are in.
If your monthly wage is more than $A450, your employer must contribute an additional sum equal to 9.5% of your wage into a superannuation (pension) account for you. If you entered Australia on an eligible temporary resident visa you can, in most cases, access your contributions when you leave Australia, although the contributions will be taxed.
