Fruit picking, seasonal, & harvest jobs & work in Tasmania

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


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

However, if you are a backpacker, make sure that you have a work and travel visa, not just a travel visa. Without it, you will not be able to work.

Peak season is between January and May. The work is very quiet between June to November, although with some luck it can be found.

The most common crops are: apples, berries, cherries, grapes, hops, stone fruit, and vegetables.
