Fruit Picking South Australia

Fruit Picking South Australia; South Australia 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. South Australia has a lot of wineries where they need pickers, but the area is also famous for Stone Fruits, Citrus, Berries and Cherries. When you are looking for work in summer South Australia is a good place to try as they employ a lot of backpackers for fruit picking work, it is also close to the Murray River which a lot of fruit farms have been established their due to the water they need for irrigation. When I was fruit Picking in South Australia I stayed in a lot of backpacker accommodation and I found them very clean and most had a good social life at night.
