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 you work. 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.
