Fruit picking and farm work in Tasmania are a great way for backpackers to earn cash and experience the friendly culture of regional Tasmania whilst travelling and enjoying the unique beauty of the great outdoors. More people than ever are heading to Tassie to take advantage of recent changes to the working holiday visa which allows travellers who have worked as a seasonal worker in regional Australia for at least three months to apply for a second work visa in Australia. So you can make friends, get a tan, and then get a second working visa all whilst earning money to extend your travels. The definition of seasonal work required for application for a second working holiday visa was recently expanded to include not only fruit-picking and harvest work but work in other industries such as fishing, pearling, shearing, butchery and forestry.
