Not Fruit Picking – What to do?

  • Yalumba and Saltram wineries are renowned in Australia for the quality of their offerings, so check them out and sample some of their product.
  • Hire or borrow a bike and take a ride around the flat Barossa Valley, stopping at wineries for a drink and something to eat along the way.
  • Check out the Barossa Farmer’s Market, located in town every Saturday morning.

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.
