New Zealand is located in the South Pacific and is a warm welcoming country with a long tradition of attracting travelers from all over the world. Due to the climate and topography there are all kinds of different harvesting and fruit picking jobs in New Zealand. The country is made up of two main Islands with many smaller ones surrounding its shores. A country where outdoor pursuits and recreation are a huge part of the lifestyle if you like hiking, skiing, fishing or even more adrenalin filled activities such as skydiving and bungee jumping then spending a season working in a fruit picking job or other seasonal farm position may be the ideal choice for you.

Due to the climate in New Zealand there is a variety of different fruits and vegetables that are grown here and that need harvesting. As we have mentioned in other sections, this type of work can be extremely demanding and requires that you are in good physical shape. Most of the farms and Orchards in the country will offer short term job assignments.

The Kiwi fruit is the national fruit of New Zealand hence the nickname 'Kiwi's' which is given to natives of this country. If you are interested in working at a Kiwi orchard and harvesting these tasty fruits then you will need to be available for picking work which starts in May. Most Kiwi Orchards will have you pick the fruit and place it into large bags that will then be weighed and you will be paid accordingly.

Besides fruit picking New Zealand offers all kinds of great opportunities for seasonal workers from working in the ski resorts, national parks, beach resorts or finding a summer job at a bar or restaurant in one of the main cities of Auckland, Wellington or Christchurch.
