If you have a valid Working Holiday or Student Work Visa, Tax File Number and at least 3 weeks availability (Workstay recommends at least 3 weeks or ideally more) and are reasonably fit (bending, climbing ladders, long hours standing, all weather) then you will probably consider doing some kind of horticulture work.

Following the Harvest Trail in Australia

If you have a valid Working Holiday Visa or Student Work Visa and a Tax File Number with at least three weeks availability, (Workstay recommends at least three weeks or ideally more) if you are reasonably fit (bending, climbing ladders, long hours standing, all weather), then you will probably consider doing some kind of horticulture work during your Australian travels. An average agriculture working week would consist of between 40 to 48 hours (Remember: Horticulture work can be subject to change without notice). The average hourly rate of pay for Horticulture work is currently between $15 and $20 per hour. Many fruit picking jobs are paid at piece rates - also called "contract" - which allows you to make better than the average hourly rate once you've got your speed up.

The Harvest Trail Website

What is the Harvest Trail website well it is Run by JobSearch:  It's Australia's largest free online jobs board. It is funded and operated by the Australian Government as a free service to help assist job seekers into employment and connect employers with quality staff.

The Harvest Trail covers.  Harvesting work all around Australia from grape picking in Berri to Mango picking in Darwin. Each year thousands of people are looking and finding casual work on fruit picking orchards and farms all around Australia, helping to bring in the fruit and vegetable harvests. Farmers are always looking for extra hands to help with the crop and around the farm even helping the wife with the kids. The hard bit, especially for overseas working holiday makers (with the right visa), is finding out when and where workers are needed.

That's how the Harvest Trail helps by linking job seekers with harvest jobs, Australia wide. It offers a great way for people to travel around Australia at their pace while working and earning money.

You can use the Harvest Trail website to:

  1. Find a harvest job
  2. Locate a labour provider
  3. Search for town and crop information

We have put together a few lists to help you find accommodation and work whilst travelling around Australia these will help point you in the right direction.


Australia gets many working holiday makers from all age groups and has come from all around the world and over the years many of these have published their adventure telling their stories good and bad. So to give you some more information about working and travelling in Australia. We have put together in no particular order a list of some of the one's that we have come in contact with over the years. If you have the time grab a coffee and have read it may open your eyes a bit more, and you may learn a little bit more on what's it like to travel and work in Australia, and there are a couple from other places.
