which city to start when beginning my 1 year WHV!?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, me and my girlfriend are travelling to Australia from England late Feb early march 2017 to begin our 1 year working holiday, we had agreed on flying into Melbourne and staying there for a week, maybe 2 just to find our feet and be "tourists"

We are looking for mainly regional work, farm work, fruit/veg picking or anything of this sort of work, but upon reading a little deeper, Melbourne does not seem to offer much of this so was wondering if anyone had any tips of where to go a little further inland or even further south to find more this type of work.

we are planning on working up the east coast throughout the year seeing how far we get!

i was considering Adelaide but this seems a little too secluded but I'm open to anything at this stage.

we plan on working up the east coast and seeing how far we get!

any information would be much appreciated guys

Australian cities are very large in area - Melbourne, for example, is 6 times the size of Greater London - so farm work, fruit/veg picking etc. are usually hours away.


If you want to stay in a city you would be looking at bar/waiting work etc.


For farm work, download the National Harvest Guide which will give information on which crops are harvested at which time of the year. As a consequence of its size, Australia has 6 distinct climate zones so crops/ harvest seasons can vary greatly throughout the country.
