Fruit Picking Dates for backpackers

Fruit Picking Dates

Fruit picking is a seasonal Job, and we have specific fruit picking dates which allows us to know where the work is. Lucky Australia is a large country so there are picking Jobs available all year round for fruit pickers and backpackers. I prefer to pick fruit in the Northern part of Australia in the winter and the Southern parts of Australia in the Summer due to the high temperatures in Northern Australia. We have listed from our experience some fruit picking dates during the year so you can go where the fruit picking work is. Please remember fruit picking times do vary due to the fact that they ripen at different times depending on rainfall or a dry period.
