Update – 23rd January 2019 No pickers required . do not ring

The rules for employing backbackers who want a second year visa have changed considerably. We are not big enough to employ anyone full time and now only use local persons.
In any case the picking season has just about finished. So we would still be interested in getting to know future applicants who live locally.( next year )  We have closed our accommodation for this necessitates that that locals only apply. We appreciate those who have contacted us but please do not contact us if you are expecting work this year.

The following is an explanation as to what would be expected from potential local workers:  Looking for something to do. Part-time maybe. Picking fruit in the morning. This is a good way of earning pocket money for those extra expenses we all have. You don’t have to have had experience as we will teach you.

  1. Hello Mr Buchanan, My name is Michael Bevins and I’ve just been browsing your blog. It’s an amazing “coincidence” to find your story about Himalayan travels, as I’ve been living just north of Mcleod Ganj in Himachal Pradesh for the last 4-5 years, and am now looking to move to Scamander (after a friend recommended Bicheno). I leave in a week (June 1,2017). So I was browsing the web for rentals and possible work in Scamander and came across your site. I’d been fantasizing about a job with some human interaction and the possibility of getting my hands in the soil too. So it’s a pretty cute “coincidence”. I’ll drop in once I’m sorted, hopefully late June (if not earlier). I’m 64…for what that’s worth. I just thought I’d drop you a line to introduce myself. Cheers.

  2. Hi, I am locating to Scamander in a couple of months, exact time pending on the sale of our house here in NSW, and I was wondering if there would be any work going? Both my husband and myself have a hospitality background as well as have our own small fresh produce stall from our home. Is there an email we can send a resume to? Look forward to hearing from you,
    Regards, Laura

    • Why don’t you drop in one day and introduce yourself. Living in Scamander is really good for us. We do need pickers in Summer and would prefer locals. We also have other work during the year but this largely depends on the applicant’s experience and their desires.
      regards Denis
