Fruit Picking Northern Territory

Fruit Picking work in the Northern Territory; most of the fruit farms are found between Katherine and Darwin but Ti Tree (near Tennant Creek) is a big grape and melon producing area. The mango season in Darwin can employ in excess of 2000 people. While the busiest part of the season generally runs from late September through to November, there are often extra pruning and associated work available until January (and that's when you get some tropical, cooling rain + awesome electric storms - not for the faint-hearted!). With mango-picking, there is generally the option of staying on-site at a cheap price. Information sourced from (

When Fruit Picking in the Northern Territory please remember that in Summer that it's very hot and for people who are not used to these conditions during summer it may be a good idea to go to the southern states for fruit picking. If you need any more information about fruit picking dates you can view them here. You should also remember that  the top half of the Northern Territory does have a lot of Cyclones during summer and this can also change work conditions and availability.

When should I go there?

January to April - citrus

May to November - melons

October to December – mangoes
