A lot of the fruit picking, harvest and seasonal work in Western Australia is concentrated relatively close to its capital city, Perth; although there is other work in other parts of the state.

Generally speaking you can find work all year around, and the season peaks in June, July and August with plenty of work available.

The Margaret River area is home to some of Australia's finest vineyards producing premium wine, and is an amazing place to work with breath-taking scenery.

However, if you are interested in work on the grain belt (south and east of Perth) there is plenty of work to be found.
