Best time to find fruit picking work in Burnie

Burnie is known for growing a range of vegetables, with the best months from January to June.

From July to December you may be able to find work, but it is not known as a peak season. During these months I recommend you organise a job before you get there, otherwise you may find that there is no work available.

Cherries and apples are also grown in the area, but the availability of work in these crops is low.
