Blue Topaz Caravan Park is a well known place for backpackers to stay when visiting the Southern Downs Region. We welcome all international backpacking guests looking to work in our regional area.
Blue Topaz Staff happily provide job placement assistance by connecting working holiday guests with local farmers seeking employees. Local farm work can include picking or packing tomatoes, capsicums, apples, strawberries, beans, zucchinis and more. Wages vary depending on each farm, some pay hourly and others pay contract per bin or bucket.
When looking for jobs, we recommend that all international guests seeking work should register for free with the Best Employment Harvest Office. The Harvest Office is located at 19 Victoria Street, Stanthorpe or you can call them on (07) 4681 6200.
The harvest season is November to May each year and accommodation availability is limited during this period, so please contact us to check our availability.
We have a range of budget style accommodation to suit your backpacking needs and great discounts given for weekly stays!
Please note that all long term backpacking guests are charged a refundable security deposit on arrival.
Blue Topaz also offer FREE bus-stop transfers, FREE weekly shopping bus services and unlimited FREE WIFI. Shuttle bus farm drop-off services can also be arranged for a small fee and operates only during the season.
