Work in Australia

Program Duration: 12 months to 2 years

The Australian General Farm work program is usually with livestock, crop, farm equipment, machinery or infrastructure.

General Farm work gives an opportunity to be part of Australian Country life living and working closely day to day with Australian Farmers, often as a general assistant. You will need to be motivated, willing to learn and apply yourself and able to cope with some challenges. This type of farm work can be great fun, but it can be challenging too. 

These are usually high value items so farmers are looking for responsible workers who are willing to apply themselves, work hard and learn fast. You do not need previous skill or experience, but it helps.
(These types of work are quite different to fruit picking and normally requires a different mindset and way of working) 
You can expect:

  • A choice of jobs with known and trusted employers
  • Job offers suited to your skills and experience
  • Training that that gives you skills and awareness to prepare you for Australian farm work
  • Training from experienced farmer/trainers, setting your expectations
