Harvest Work
Harvest work can be picking, packing, planting, stripping, thinning, or sorting fruit, veggies, or even nuts. It's usually hard work, but usually a really good learning experience, too. It's something you'd never do at home, and a good way to make money while seeing parts of Australia you'd never have seen, and meeting locals you'd never have dreamed of meeting... many of them very odd.

This section is your complete guide to the harvest industry in Australia. So if you've discovered the harsh reality that the cities of Australia aren't the easiest place in the world to get the work and are planning on heading to the country instead, this guide will tell you most of what you need to know to get started. It's all the information that I wish I had had before I heading off into the unknown world of farming.

If you want to get an idea of what each type of fruit or veggie are like to pick, I've got short summaries or the ones that I've picked myself. For the types I haven't picked, I've written what I know about them based on what I've heard from others.
