Working on farms is a great way to see Australia and make some great memories and lifelong friends.
Please be aware that there are a number of pest and diseases that occur in one state and not another. The fruit and vegetable growers in each state are relying on anyone planning to take fresh fruit and vegetables across borders to be aware of what’s allowed and not allowed.
It’s not just fruit and vegetables: pests and diseases can also travel on muddy boots, clothes and hats. If you make sure you clean anything that you have worn on one farm before moving onto another, you’ll be doing you bit to protect the industry.
The fruit and vegetable growers of Australia thank you for your valuable contribution.
Enjoy our beautiful country and have a great time!
