Ensure Work is Available
Mechanical harvesting has reduced the need for as many farm hands as were once needed and while this work still exists it can be harder to find at certain times of the year.

If you are coming to Mildura only for farm work, we recommend that you do some research before travelling to ensure that work is available. A good place to start is by contacting the National Harvest Labour Information Service on 1800 062 332 (within Australia) or visit they will give you up to date advice on work and conditions in the area and only list jobs for farmers that do the right thing by their workers.

Mildura boasts a wealth of opportunities to earn cash and experience the country lifestyle as you enjoy your travel adventure. As is the case wherever you travel you need to look out for your own personal safety and security. This also applies when accepting work and entering accommodation arrangements.

While most employers and landlords do the right thing, there is a minority that set out to take advantage of adventurous, trusting and vulnerable people – this is the same wherever you travel in Australia. This information provided by Mildura Regional Development should be taken into account wherever you choose to visit.

We want your time in Mildura to be enjoyable and productive. Your feedback, both positive and negative, will assist Mildura Regional Development to work with local operators and farmers to deliver the best possible experiences.
To safeguard yourself some good habits to get into are:
Always ask for a receipt of payment and hold onto it
Look for the accommodation house's certificate of registration (usually on the wall in the lobby area)
Ask how and when you are being paid - make sure you understand these arrangements
Seek assistance early if you think something is wrong
