Best time to find fruit picking work in Donnybrook

Donnybrook is known for its cooler and wetter climate fruits like apples, pears and tomatoes, but the best time to go is during the stone fruit picking season, which generally runs from December to March.

You can also try your luck from June to September, however I highly recommend you try to secure a job before going, otherwise you may find that there is no work for you.
