Western Australia (WA) is a giant landmass which covers nearly half of the country. Even though it is such a large territory most of the population live in the south-west corner in the city of Perth and surrounding areas.
Fruit picking jobs in WA are mostly concentrated in the Perth area with all kinds of harvesting options available.
It is a great part of the country to explore and the city of Perth is a very cool and laid back spot with great nightlife and sights to see.
Some of the best fruit picking jobs in Western Australia can be found in the following places. This is by no means a complete list just some of the top places.
Perth - Perth is the fourth biggest city in Australia and it is a fun, vibrant city with an eclectic mix of individuals. It is located in the south-west corner of WA on the coast and is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in Australia complete with white sand and crystal clear waters. As a big city there are obviously no fruit picking jobs in Perth but it is at the heart of Western Australia fruit picking as it is close to so many vineyards which are part of the wine country in this area..
Albany - South-east of Perth you will find the region of Albany. Fruit picking jobs in Albany are mostly available at the many vineyards which are located in this part of the region. Many of these wineries are well-know around the world, if you are in to your wine, and give you the chance to live and work in a beautiful environment and even sample some of the great wines which are produced here.
Margaret River - This area is also located relatively close to Perth, about 150 miles south. It is also part of the Australian wine region and offers a number of picking jobs. It is a very popular stop on the backpacking circuit and most of the hostels will have jobs posted on their notice boards. The main season for fruit picking in Margaret River is from February - April.
Swan Valley - Probably the closest option for anyone wanting to be a short distance from Perth is Swan Valley. This area is Australia's oldest wine region and is only about 30 miles from Perth with many harvesting options, especially between July - August. Many of the farms will even offer transport to and from hostels in Perth.
Western Australia Fruit Picking - What they say...
"Absolutely love the south-west and everything it has to offer. We had no problem landing jobs, although we were there during the busiest time of the season. Some of the scenery is breathtaking and Perth is a very cool city which is fun to hang out it."
"Definitely include Western Australia in your list of stops when planning a trip to Australia. Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane are all really cool cities but I thing Perth and this region in general was our favorite part of the country. If you time it right you will have no problem finding picking jobs, I would recommend the Swan Valley area, it is so beautiful and has a number of vineyards which are looking for helpers. "
