Fruit Picking Queensland

Fruit Picking Work in Queensland for backpackers and fruit pickers.

Fruit Picking Queensland; Fruit Picking is physically hard work, and often the weather is very hot and wet during summer in Queensland, so I would advise fruit picking in the southern states during summer. Queensland is an area which has a lot of fruit picking work for backpackers, and the backpacker accommodation in the area is setup for fruit pickers. Queensland is famous for its picking of Stone Fruits, Bananas and Mango’s. There is a lot of fruit picking hostels to list so I have broken it up into 3 area groups which list fruit picking accommodation.
