Employers and workers in the busy Sunshine Moreton Harvest Area are served well by the MADEC Harvest Trail Services Office in Caboolture. The Harvest Area is in south-east Queensland and covers the Sunshine Coast and Moreton Bay North geographical areas.
Together, Harvest Office Manager Amy Nash and Administration Officer Carly Daniels have in-depth knowledge of the local region and the horticultural sector.
Amy has been living in the Moreton region for more than 10 years, working within the Employment Services and Real Estate industries. Carly has always lived locally and has first-hand experience of farm work.
They operate an open-door policy and actively encourage those looking for help this harvest season to visit or ring.
The Sunshine Moreton Harvest Trail Services office is conveniently located at 2/77 King Street, Caboolture and they can be contacted on 07-52947000.
The office helps local harvest employers with their labour needs, through sourcing both Australian workers and visa holders to fill harvest positions. The team accesses a diverse pool of workers and engages with the local community to promote the industry and source and prepare Australian residents and itinerant workers eager to take up harvest work.
While the Sunshine Moreton region is busy with strawberry runner planting from March, and strawberry harvesting from June to September, there are many other crops grown in the region too. There is certainly something for everyone!
Local pineapple farms have peak periods from March through to October with ginger, lychee, raspberry, custard apple, macadamia and tomato producers all looking for workers as well. Work with avocados, zucchinis, lettuce, dragon fruit and citrus can also be found.
With Brisbane only 50 minutes from Caboolture, the beautiful beaches of the Sunshine Coast a similar distance away, and the stunning hinterland within driving distance, this region has enormous appeal.
Boating, camping, fishing, hiking, waterfalls, beaches and the nightlife are only a few of the attractions that make this region so appealing to both local residents, travelling Australian workers and working holiday makers.
