It has a number of different postcodes, some of which are ineligible for backpackers looking to get their Extended Working Holiday Visa. If you need to do some fruit picking work to get an extended visa you should make sure that the postcode of the farm you are interested in working at has an eligible postcode.

As far as fruit picking areas go in Australia, Perth Hills is a low producer of fruits and vegetables.
Perth Hills is only really apples, pears and stone fruit. Unfortunately there is no real peak season, and depending on the weather from year to year work can be very scarce.
The best time to try to find work is from November to March. However, I highly recommend you try to secure a job before going, otherwise you may find that there is no work for you.

Generally lots of work. There may be work. Generally no work.
