If you are after fruit picking jobs in Tasmania, then the easiest way to find one is to ask the apple orchards. Tasmania grows plenty of apples – you might get really sick of them after a while! To put it into perspective: The apples that are grown in Tasmania are exported into 20 other countries. Tasmania produces around 55,000 tonnes of apples every single year, and the industry has a value of somewhere between AUS$40-50 million. Varieties that can be found when you look for fruit picking jobs in Tasmania are Fuji apples, Red Delicious apples, Pink Lady, Sundowner, Jonagold, and Braeburn, just to name a few.

Of course, the fruit picking jobs in Tasmania don't all involve the picking of apples, there are also orchards that grow others fruits, e.g. grapes, berries, and stone fruits. But basically, it's safe to say that apple related jobs can usually even be found outside of the season. Most likely it would then not be a fruit picking but a fruit packing job.

When it comes to fruit picking jobs in Tasmania, it's usually allowed to eat apples while you work (it's a bit of a different story in a pack house though – you just won't have the time to focus on anything else but on the rolling conveyor belt in front of you, or you'll have apples piling up in front of you). This is great in the first few days, maybe even in the first few weeks – but many people who did this kind of fruit picking job in Tasmania reported that they soon got sick of apples, and after leaving the job, they did not want to eat any apples at all for a while! But the same is also true for any other of the fruit picking jobs in Tasmania – sometimes you just get sick of the fruit you are picking.
