How can I find a fruit picker job many months in advance?

Hi, I'm looking for a fruit picking/farm job in Australia. I'd like to start somewhere around February - April. Problem is that many of the sites where you find jobs have positions for "starting immediately", "next week", etc. etc. Where/who should I turn to to find a job months in advance? Thanks.

Combine that with the fact that seasonal workers and backpackers on working holidays are notoriously unreliable and perhaps you'll understand why nobody will hire workers more than a week or so in advance...

Maybe try and post an add saying what your looking for and when you're available- you can post adds in different locations of Australia. It's becoming a really big website and is free to use- I always see fruit picking jobs advertised on there! Good luck!
