It is a long way to Hillston from all capital cities and fatigue related crashes are a major causeof death or serious injury on our Outback roads. Make sure you leave plenty of time to get here, Sydney and Melbourne are at least 8 hours drive away, so take lots of breaks and rest during your journey here.
Hillston is where the "Lachlan River meets the Outback". and is classified as a remote location for your 88 days/ second year visa. There is a lot of produce grown here, during most months of the year, including citrus, olives, cherries, cotton, grains, potatoes and garlic.
Whilst we do not offer work as such, as we are not contractors, we have many contacts on many of the farms in the area and are happy to help you find your job.
We are focused on providing safe, good, CLEAN, accommodation for you to stay, for as long or as short a period as you need, where working and living in a small country town will leave you with fond memories of your stay in Hillston, Australia.
