It’s all about the Oranges in Gayndah, with many referring to the Region as the ” Orange capital of Queensland”. Being a small rural town it would be smart to have your own car and camping gear and I would even go as far as calling the local recruitment agency before arriving. Also weather can be wet and damp in some parts of the peak season so make sure you have some wet and warm work gear.
Fruit Picking Work in Gayndah
Coming from Brisbane take the Bruce then get on the Burnett Highway at Gympie. ( You can also take the Burnett Highway the whole way from Brissy) Drive should take about 4 hours.
Not Fruit Picking – What to do?
There are several beautiful lookouts in Gayndah and all in all its a pretty relaxing country place. There’s not too much going on there but if you like fishing and camping or checking out historic railway bridges you will have things to do in your spare time.
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.
