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.
