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.
