    If you're backpacking Australia and looking for work, this post will help you find fruit picking jobs in Western Australia.

    At GAFFL we know that it can be difficult to find fruit picking work in Australia. There are a few websites out there that help you find work but they also ask for money before showing you any job listings. We’ve devised a way for people to find these jobs in Western Australia free of any cost.

    We've also written about how to find fruit picking work in New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria, Tasmania, and South Australia. This post will focus on helping you with fruit picking in Western Australia. Additionally, you try checking out our many hostel guides to fruit picking jobs in Australia. For Western Australia specifically, you can check out our guide on some of the best working hostels to find fruit picking jobs in Western Australia. 

    Here’s how it works: choose a location that is currently harvesting a fruit/crop and then contact a farm in that area to find out if they have an opening. We have provided you with contact details for different farms in the area, as well as ideas about other things to do, information about accommodations, and directions on how to get there. We retrieved most of the contact information below from the yellow pages or Facebook. We don't have any affiliation with the farms or wineries listed below.

    Before contacting the farms directly, you may have luck finding fruit picking work in Western Australia by browsing through the Australian Government’s Harvest website. All of the harvest information below was directly sourced from the Australian Government’s Harvest website.

    Another great way to find harvest work is to contact the Harvest Labour Service provider in your area. You can find their contacts here.
