What Skills Do We Bring to You?

At The 88th Day we have first hand experience in completing the regional farm work, and have experienced the highs and lows that come with it. Sporadic and unreliable work schedules, combined with dealing with independent farmers in rural Australia without any outside support made the whole experience a rollercoaster. There were many enjoyable aspects of completing regional farm work, however they were outnumbered by numerous aggravating, confusing and stressful occasions on the road to 88 days. That’s why we want to make a difference! Sign up to The 88th Day and we will ensure you receive your second year visa with many more highs than lows!


The 88 Day All in One Service

When you pay the one-off membership fee at The 88th Day, whether it’s as a solo or social backpacker you get more than just the reliable, hourly paid job eligible to start the 88 day countdown. At The 88th Day we offer a bespoke service that includes building or tailoring your resume to maximise your opportunities, take you through all the paperwork that comes with a new employer, as well as offering as much advice as we can give with regards to finding accommodation in rural Australia. When possible, we can do more than just advise on accommodation, we would like to be able to secure a place for you to stay before you start work. The 88th Day welcomes everyone to the farm work family and ensure all our members are given the respect they deserve, that’s why we don’t accept any fees until we know that your farm work is secured.

James Knowles - Partner

“Since my graduation in Mathematics and Big Data Analysis from The University of Nottingham in 2015 I have been living and working in the backpacking industry. As well as seeing as much of the world as possible, much of my time has been spent in the rural farm lands of Australia. This experience has proven crucial when connecting backpackers to farmers, two very unfamiliar groups.”


Thomas Little - Partner

“Following graduation from The University of Nottingham with a Masters in Mechanical Engineering I have spent the majority of time living abroad, firstly in Canada and now Australia. It has been a journey of discovery, none more so than the many months spent travelling rural Australia both during and after completing my regional farm work. After experiencing 88 days of rural work first hand, James and I realised there was a difference to be made for backpackers in Australia, hence The 88th Day.”
