Why Choose Adelaide?

The Northern Region of Adelaide contains one of the highest concentrations of food and wine producers in all of Australia. From giant potato/onion producers to high end Chateau's this region offers jobs in every aspect of specified work.

Many of the jobs in this area provide regular work schedules and hourly pay, giving you a great shot at completing your farm work quickly and saving plenty of money while you're at it.

Adelaide is a major city with a population of over 1 million people, the idea that you could complete your regional work somewhere like this seems unrealistic. But because under the Governments specified work initiative the entirety of South Australia is listed as rural, you can live and work just minutes outside of the city centre. This makes the experience far more interesting and you get to enjoy this fantastic city rather than living in a small farming town 8 hours outside of Brisbane.

We love Adelaide and living just outside the city, sharing the experience with fellow backpackers many of our guests have stayed long after completing their 88 days.

Find farm work

How To Use Our App To Find Farm Work

Whether you stay in one of our properties or pay for our app through a subscription fee finding farm work on our app is very simple. With over 3000 producers to call, email or get directions to all within the app, getting hired shouldn't take long at all.

It's our view that the best way to find work using our app is to use our map, get in the car and visit the producers yourself. This is an industry stuck in its ways and handing a resume in to the front desk is a surefire way to get a job. Most producers in this region have plenty of work that requires no previous experience, it doesn't matter who you are if you hand out CV's to 50 producers in a week at least one will give you a job!

For those lucky enough to stay in our accommodation we will offer extra help and guidance if needed, but it’s rare for us to have to step in and use our contacts in the industry.

Farm database

Access Our Live Database

We have collected data on thousands of farms, producers, wine makers and everything in between across Australia. But this is just the beginning every week we expand our list of employers and updating contact details. All data in the areas we offer accommodation for is free as for the rest of the country, everything we know about these employers is included in the premium section of our app and is updated from our servers when we learn new information.

We continue to improve the quality our data week by week and your app will update seamlessly with new producers, and we will alert you when particular employers are reaching out for employees.
