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.

      G’day Jens,

      Probably not the best place to post your details as employers won’t be regularly scanning this area. Please get on the job board and start applying for positions.

      Best of luck

      Dimi
