All of the above areas have various different forms of specified work, visit The Harvest Trail for a full list. We picked grapes in McLaren Vale, Apples in Shepparton and packed potatoes in Barossa Valley. Barossa Valley was the pick of the 3, we got pretty good hours and the pay was hourly. McLaren Vale grape picking is a farce to be honest.
