If you are a Queenslander looking for work, on university holidays, or a working-holiday maker, opportunity abounds in horticulture.
Queensland is Australia’s premier state for fruit, vegetable and nut production. Horticulture is the state’s second largest primary industry, worth over $3.1 billion per annum at the farm gate and employing around 25,000 people. Queensland’s 2,800 farms produce more than 120 types of fruit, vegetables, herbs and nuts, and are located from Stanthorpe in the state’s south to Lakelands in the far north. With 16 horticultural regions and almost 100,000 hectares under production, there are job opportunities for every Queenslander.
