Worth a look into the caravan(loosely) park at the Daly River - Dick Perry runs a park there, great bloke - love a red wine and a bourbon was even better!!
He uses a traveller or two to help him out at times, well worth a look mate..
Catch the Experience::perry's on the Daly Northern Territory Australia
Never knew about the link untill now, but have been there, cooked a roast for him and would have stayed longer if we had the time!! Great people, great place!!

The wife and i travelled a fair bit following the fruit season when we first met in the late 80s early 90s.
Met in vic picking pears' then onto apples in tumbarumba and batlow, then oranges in gaynda and finaly tomatoes and mangos in bowen.
The picking itself was quite labor intensive but if you can get on the tractors halling the fruit bins to and from the shed its money for jam, you can stay on the orchards cheap as and the fascilites are often quite good.
We met some fantastic people (my wife for one) ,saw some fantistic country and had a ball in the process. You wont make a fortune but you can make some decent coin, enough for some savings and enough to keep you on the road for a while.
Just a thought, good luck with your travels, my wife and i plan to do similar when our kids leave the nest.

Cheers,
Brian.

There are quite a few website designated to working/travelling holidays now.
I just googled travelling work and found about 3 Australian based ones.
www.workaboutaustralia.com.au was the first on the list.
I couldn't think of a better way to see Australia myself :D
