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 Australian citizen or permanent resident
- Are an eligible working holiday maker who has a visa with appropriate working rights
- Are an overseas student with working rights in Australia
- Have a temporary work visa with general work rights. This means you're not restricted to an employer or type of work.
