Manjimup is a smallish sized country town, with an approximate population of 4,500. It is south of Perth, located on the highway between Bunbury and Albany.
Its postcode is 6258, which makes it an area eligible for backpackers and people wanting to come and work and travel Australia to extend their Working Holiday Visa to an Extended Working Holiday Visa.
It is located about 300 km's from Perth, which should take about 3.5 - 4 hours to drive, if you don't make any stops.
Manjimup only really grows cooler climate apples and pears. The peak season is March to April where these is generally a lot of work to be found
With a little luck you can also find work one month either side of peak season. However I highly recommend you try to secure a job before going, otherwise you may find that there is no work for you.
You can totally forget trying to find work from June to January, there will be almost certainly no work to be found. Do not even try, it will just be a waste of your time.

There is a good range of hotels, motels, caravan parks, guesthouses and cabins for people looking for work in the area.
Some of the orchards may have limited accommodation for workers. But you should organise this with the orchard before starting work. Not all of them have accommodation options, and those that do only have a limited number of spots available.
You can also check with the local Tourist Information Centre to see what other options are available to you.
