Avocado season in Childers runs from March to July. There are limited places available and they usually fill up weeks in advance. Please fill in the work application form, decide when you can arrive and call to see if there are places left.
Picking avocadoes usually offers stable work usually 5 days a week, 7.00 - 3.30pm for the season. The cooler Autumn and Winter temperatures and long season make it a popular job to qualify for the Second Year Working Holiday Visa.
Avocadoes are picked from the ground or a cherry picker; you need a drivers license to operate a cherry picker, and not be afraid of heights.
We start taking applications for Avocado season mid February. Please complete the Work Enquiry Form below and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please ready the Working Information page for more about working and staying with us.
Places are highly competitive and people who arrive at the hostel first are first in line for the jobs. Please call to check we have beds and jobs available if you want to wait on site.
