Seasonal Workers' Accommodation, Motueka & Tasman region, New Zealand

The easy availability of orchard jobs during the summer season means you can stay here longer and work for extra money in between exploring the Nelson Tasman region and its three beautiful National Parks, Nelson Lakes, Kahurangi and, of course, the Abel Tasman.

Kiwifruit, apples, pears, grapes and hops all need seasonal workers to thin, prune, pick and pack from around October to June.

Happy Apple Backpackers Hostel welcomes seasonal workers.
