Where’s Cadell

Getting There

Located 196km North East of Adelaide, if you have a car, drive towards Waikerie on the Sturt Highway and turn North at Blanchetown while following the signs to Cadell.
There are also coaches that run daily to Waikerie, around 30km away from Cadell.

Accommodation

Some farms will provide dorm style bedding or will accommodate harvest workers with camper vans or camping equipment. There is also a caravan park with camping ground in town and a variety of other accommodation options at nearby Waikerie.

Not Fruit Picking – What to do?

  • Hire a boat or jetski and take a ride or go fishing on the famous Murray River.
  • Check out some of the famous foodie destinations in Cadell or nearby Waikerie eg. Illangi and Spook Hill wines.
  • Soak up some fine weather – the area is known for boasting more sunlight hours than Queensland’s Gold Coast!

Extending Your Australian Working Holiday Visa

Many harvest jobs will meet the Second Australian Working Holiday Visa eligibility and count towards the 88 days of specified work. Some regional locations and jobs are ineligible which could lead to the Department of Immigration rejecting your application. So remember to confirm whether or not your fruit picking or harvest job will count towards the Second Australian WHV.
