Harvest Trail Services connect workers with employers in harvesting areas across Australia. Harvest jobs are found in regional and rural areas. Workers can mix work with travel and learn new skills or start a career in agriculture.
You can do harvest work in Australia if you:

- Are an eligible working holiday maker who has a visa with appropriate working rights
