  5. Madec - the labour organisation used by the Federal Government to connect job seekers with work on the national harvest trail is reporting that hundreds of backpackers are unable to find work due to the short supply of fruit-picking jobs in the South Australian Riverland. A gap between the citrus harvest and the stone fruit season often means fewer casual jobs in the region, additionally, forecasts of poor seasons for cherries and apricots will likely hamper hamper employment prospects. A spokesman for Madec said there were around 300 backpackers seeking work locally and many more in other parts of Australia. "We still have a number of people who turn up just in the hope that there's some work and our phones continue to ring with people who are around the country and in other harvest regions who are just finding the same thing," he said. "They just don't have the work available up in these regions so they're phoning, they're trying to come down here but unfortunately we just can't help them at the moment." The Riverland is a popular destination for backpackers who are keen to extend their working holiday visas by doing 3 months' work on farms. Philip Sims - who grows crops including peaches, nectarines, sultanas and pistachios in the Riverland area said he is expecting a poor return from apricots this year, after a warmer winter failed to set the fruit. "Normally where I might have 12 people working for me, I might have one other person beyond myself, it's just such a light crop," he said. "There's certainly no chance, regrettably, of employing anyone else." Mr Sims said stone fruit producers across the Riverland were experiencing a bad year and would be hiring fewer labourers than usual. Scott Cameron from Madec said he remained optimistic most of those hoping for work in the Riverland would get something eventually. He said it was easier for locals wanting seasonal work to bide their time than for backpackers on limited visas. "As far as our backpackers go, yeah there's probably a little bit of a reason for some concern," he said.
  6. Hi Liam & Becky here, we are new to the forum and this is our first post. We are heading over to Australia in September (only 56 days to go) on WHV's and looking for some help and advice. We are looking to complete our 88 days / 3 months regional work as soon as possible to get it out of the way and then be able to extend our visa for a further year. We are happy to do any kind of work fruit picking, planting, farm work whatever is available and are willing to travel anywhere. We are hoping to save some money whilst we are doing our regional work as it seems to be pretty good pay in some areas, from my research wages can be up to $1000 per week, this would give us more chance to travel afterwards. We are hoping to have work secured before we leave so we can start straight away. Could anyone help with suggesting good places / companies to work for that offer good wages and accommodation. Any info, advice, contacts or leads would be great.
