Cherry Lane Fields employ a large number of casual cherry pickers and packers during the cherry season. Whether you live in Western Australia or elsewhere, you should consider a working holiday to participate in our annual fruit harvest!
Cherries and are picked and packed for export during our beautiful summer. If you are travelling from outside Australia and wish to work for us during cherry season, you must have an appropriate visa issued by the Australian Government to be eligible for employment.
Casual packing and picking positions for the 2018-2019 cherry season will open in late November. We will advise then of application details.
All successful applicants are required to find their own accommodation and transport etc.
Cherry picking starts around late November and continues through to mid-January depending on seasonal conditions. Pickers must handle the cherries with care and are paid by the quantity (kilograms) they pick.
