Fruit picking, seasonal, & harvest jobs & work in South Australia

Do you want to earn some extra cash by picking fruit in South Australia?
Don't know when, or where, or what to pick? Or what kind of work might be available?
Keep reading to discover everything you need to know about fruit picking in South Australia!


Although South Australia is Australia's driest state, there is still plenty of fruit picking work to be found!

The Murray river enters from the east, providing a wealth of farms for backpackers to work. And there are many wineries providing grapes to make some of the best wine Australia has to offer.

Like the Northern Territory, any fruit picking, seasonal or harvest work done in South Australia counts towards your three months work for an extended visa.

Peak season is between November and March and the most common crops you will find are apples, cherries, citrus, grapes, pears, stone fruit, and vegetables.
