    Have a look at this site.
    There are certain areas that you have to work in for that extra visa stay.It's all on this site.
    jobsearch.gov.au/harvesttrai...

    You have done it all legal so far, so I would keep doing it this way. You have to show you have worked for the three months for your visa to be extended, I think it's a great way to get your extra time here. Because the cyclone up north I would think there will be a few extra backpackers coming further down south to find work.
    Have fun

    The main farms around Airlie and Proserpine are cane farms. They often take on extras for the crushing which will be full swing in Sept. There may be even some orchards nearby but not sure about this.

    Bowen which is about an hours drive away is where the main fruit industry is...mangoes, avocados and citus etc.

    Hope this helps...
