Mundubbera, aboriginal for ” Meeting of the Waters” is referred to as the citrus capital of the North. The area supports a large mandarin industry along with the other citrus fruits. Work is going to be hot during the days, so get ready to be in the sun and work up a sweat. Evenings can be quite cold as well during peak work season, so be prepared and pack well.
Fruit Picking Work in Mundubbera
Ok, so the bad news is there’s no public transport running in and out of Munduberra, so you will need a car or a lift! From Brisbane Munduberra and 4-5 hour drive along the Bruce and Burnett Highway. If your coming from up north its a 4 hour drive south from Rockhampton.
Okay so your not on the east coast now so during peak season accommodation can get packed. It is advised to take your own camping gear as there’s a chance you could reside on the farm. Otherwise standard caravan park, motel/hotels are available.
