Fruit Picking Western Australia; This part of Australia from the top to the bottom stretches for about 4000 km, and fruit picking over there is quite physically hard work, and often the weather is very warm during summer. Western 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, but be warned you sometimes have to travel a long way between fruit picking towns.
