Where’s Huonville

Getting There

Huonville is a half an hour drive south west of Hobart, buses regularly service the area as well as flights to Hobart from the mainland.

Accommodation

Some farms will provide basic dorm style accommodation for harvesters or will accommodate fruit pickers with camper vans or camping equipment. Residing in Hobart is a feasable option if you have a car, otherwise there’s a backpackers hostel and motel in the local area.

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.
