Fruit picking Coffs Harbour
Want to earn money and get your second year visa? There are short-term fruit picking jobs in and around Coffs Harbour NSW.
The Coffs Harbour area has fruit-picking jobs available all year round. Some of the produce grown includes blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, cucumbers, zucchinis, macadamia nuts, bananas and avocados.
Blueberries are the predominant fruit picked by backpackers staying with us. The main blueberry picking season goes from August to March. Farmers usually let us know that they are actively looking for workers mid to late August. This is dependent on weather conditions.
At Aussitel Backpackers we have employment application forms and often have local farmers phoning us looking for workers.
The earlier in the season you arrive the sooner you can receive your forms and apply for fruit-picking work. Jobs will be allocated on a first come first serve basis. There will be more positions available as the season progresses.
Aussitel Backpackers offers a weekly rate for guests that are staying with us and picking fruit.
For those people without transport, we can find you a lift with other guests that drive. Alternatively, Aussitel Backpackers has cars to rent from $30 per day.
