How Do You Know There Are Plenty Of Jobs For Americans In Australia?
How do I know that there is plenty of work available in Australia for Americans? That's a good question and I'm glad you asked. In regard to unskilled labor - I have personally worked in many regions of Australia and I am the Author of an ebook titled: Work In Australia - Follow The Harvest Trail. If you are interested, you can take a look at it by clicking the first blue link at the top of this page where it says: 'Travel / Work In Australia.'
Not only have I worked in many different areas of the country including Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania, I also met a man who has spent 20 years of his life on the road working on the Harvest Trail and in other unskilled work.
I had a wonderful time talking to him about the different kind of jobs he had been employed in over the years. He recalled how he loved working for a catering business because he and his mates got to keep all the left over food and beverages! He was certainly a character. His advice in regards to picking fruit was to stay clear of the 'heavy stuff', and get work on the strawberry and blueberry farms. He said it's easy, and it is if you don't mind a little bit of physical work in the outdoors.
Where To Work In Australia
You will probably be spoiled for choice when it comes to a location to work in Australia, especially if you intend working on the Harvest Trail where you will find work anywhere between Broome in the North of Western Australia through to Hobart in the South of Tasmania.
It is important to remember that Australia is a huge landscape with many different climate zones from tropical to minus degrees Celcius in winter. The Southern states are generally much cooler, particularly Tasmania.
