Costa Pty Ltd Berry Category is Australia's leading berry producer with multiple sites located across Australia. Costa grows and markets blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and blackberries. Costa is a world leader in blueberry varietal improvement, and grows approximately 45% of Australia's total blueberry supply. 

Costa's Berry Category is proudly at the forefront of genetic and growing innovation.  We export to some of the most demanding markets in the world, so food safety is paramount. In all that we grow, we're committed to sustainable production and growing.

We are currently looking for FRUIT PICKERS AND PACKERS to join our team on a casual basis in Walkamin and Atherton, tropical Far North Queensland. In return for your commitment to the role, you will receive;


  • Piece rate pay – the faster you pick, the more earning potential you have.
  • Days that qualify for a second year working holiday visa – all of our sites are classed as regional for the purposes of the second year visa 88 days requirement. You will be emailed pay slips weekly to gather as evidence for the second year visa application.
  • Potential for year round work – as Costa Berry Category also has farms in  New South Wales, Tasmania and Western Australia, there is the potential for you to follow the ‘berry trail’ around the country, earning money as you travel!
  • Possibility of ongoing work – all of our farms have a wide range of jobs including pack shed work, irrigation and maintenance. People who perform well and show commitment to the job may be offered opportunities to transfer to these roles when they are available.
