Territorians wanted for Mango Picking

Traditionally seen as a job for backpackers, Territorians are being encouraged to be a part of this year’s mango picking season.

It comes as the industry has been hit hard by the introduction of the Commonwealth Government’s backpacker tax.

The Sweetest Job campaign is a partnership between multiple agencies and advocacy groups to help Territory farmers fill the 2500 positions on offer during the eight week annual picking season in October and November.

The positions are mainly located on farms in the Katherine and Litchfield areas.
