Due to the State Government closing Queensland borders and the strict movement regulations now in force, the Queensland Health Department rules state that all young people wishing to work in our area will need WRITTEN PROOF of your location for the PAST 14 (FOURTEEN) DAYS to be offered accommodation and work in our area. MOST FARMS IN OUR AREA ALSO REQURE YOU TO BE FULLY VACCINATED!! Please call us if you have any questions - (07) 4683 4358.
Harvest work in general is physically demanding. You could be required to carry and climb a ladder, carry a heavy picking bag from your shoulders or bend over all day cutting vegetables or picking strawberries. You should be fit, flexible, reasonably strong and active. You may have to work in the rain or in 35 degree heat. Be realistic about your ability and understand that the farmer needs workers who are cost effective for his business. You should have sufficient funds for at least 3 weeks as circumstances can change quickly and are affected by the weather. We require your deposit and a week’s rent be paid in advance for ALL accommodation.
Crisps Coaches run a number of daily coach services direct from Brisbane. There is no public transport in the area so having your own transport is helpful. Give us a call or email us if you need to be picked up from the bus stop* – please arrange this before arriving.
We have a Queensland Transport Operator Accreditation to take workers to and from farms in our shuttle buses each day. We also schedule regular transport to town for food shopping.
* A small charge applies for each trip.
