New Zealand Backpacker Jobs


There is a growing demand in New Zealand for seasonal workers and this demand is mostly met by backpackers. Backpackers that are willing to work at short notice and for varying durations, but usually in a great environment that offers freedom and a chance to really see this great country. So, are you an overseas backpacker and looking for a way to fuel your travel funds? Or maybe you are a kiwi yearning for a change of scene? Either way you are in the right place because this site was designed for you!

Backpackers in New Zealand have many opportunities open to them to pick up seasonal work in the horticulture and tourism industries to replenish those travel funds.


Backpacker jobs usually consist of fruit picking which is Apple picking, cherry picking, plum picking, apricot picking and many other fruit and vegetable picking seasonal jobs. Of course there are also many opportunities for backpackers to find jobs in many of the great resort holiday destinations around New Zealand. These places in the middle of summer always need short term staff and can work at short notice. They are normally hospitality seasonal jobs and could be making coffee, working in a cafe, cleaning hotels, hotels or backpackers type accommodation.
