Backpackers and fruit pickers! Jack is an 18 year old from the UK who came to see Australia with his backpack. Arriving into Warragul in February to live with the Jones Family he was able to find work immediately on @fankhauserapples farm in Drouin. Over these last few months Jack has picked multiple bins of apples everyday – saving up his money and planning his travel. As the apple harvest comes to a finish over the next few weeks, Jack will be looking for his next Aussie adventure. The country’s fruit farms rely on seasonal labour at harvest time and it’s not always easy for farmers to find people that are prepared to do this type of work. If you’re coming to the market this Saturday, say g’day to @xborchiex if you see him around. Feel free to drop your ‘must see’ Aussie travel tips in the comments
