Not Fruit Picking – What to do?
Narromine is referred to as one of the best hangliding regions in Australia so make sure you give that a crack. The fishing is great on the banks of the Macquarie river and make sure you check out the Goobang National park.
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.
