Finding farm jobs in Melbourne can be tough. Being so far south of the country, Melbourne doesn’t have the best climate to grow produce so harvesting jobs are scarce. If you do want a harvest job near Melbourne, you’ll be best off heading further out of the city. Just 40 km north-east of Melbourne is Yarra Valley, the wine vineyard district. You may have luck finding grape picking jobs here.
Closer to Melbourne city, you can try farm hand work. These roles tend to be looking for all-rounders to help cultivate plants and remove weeds. You may also be asked to help with the care of the livestock including herding, animal husbandry, feeding the animals and general cleaning.
One popular farm job in Melbourne is dairy farm hand. You’ll be asked to care for the cows and milk them daily, as well as carry out general cleaning and maintenance tasks to keep the farm in good condition.
