Smithton is also a popular tourist destination and weekend getaway area. As such you will find a range of accommodation options available to you. This includes luxury suites, hotels, motels and bed and breakfasts, campgrounds and caravan parks.
Some of the farms may offer accommodation for their workers. However, you should organise this with them before starting work. Not all have accommodation and those that do generally 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.
