Peak harvest season is from late January to early March, with shoulder periods December and April. It is advisable to ensure work is available before making your way to Greater Shepparton.

The Greater Shepparton Visitor Centre is not able to offer advice about employment in harvest labour, however you can obtain more information from the harvest office Shepparton, provided by the employment service MADEC.
