The Summit Backpackers will help backpackers to find farm jobs in the local area that will count towards the second-year and third-year visas.
Local farms harvest many fruits and vegetables, including apples, capsicums, tomatoes, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, limes, broccolini, chillis and many more varieties of delicious produce.
Every job is different. Some jobs will be outside picking or doing farm maintenance tasks, and some jobs are in shed packing and grading produce. Some jobs will pay by the hour and others are piece-rate.
We work hard to make sure that the farm work experience is a positive and successful experience for our guests.
We expect our guests to have a strong work ethic and be ready to work in physically demanding situations.
IMPORTANT : All workers must have a valid Working Holiday Visa.
