Choosing Tolga Lodge


Choosing Tolga Lodge will be one of the best decisions you will make.  We are literally the best in town for helping backpackers find a longer term farm job, other farming work, or fruit picking on the Atherton Tablelands and the Cairns Highlands area.  We have contacts across many farms including the areas of Mareeba, Dimbulah, Walkamin, Tolga, Kairi, Malanda and Yungaburra.  We are located in one of the most beautiful areas of Queensland and Australia.

We have great relationships with many local farmers, and a reputation second to none.  Our buses can take you from our door to the door of the farm.  On the Atherton Tablelands you can truly be a part of the Australian farming experience.  Our farmers want workers for farm work, fruit picking and packing which include the following types of farms:

  • Mango, Avocado and Lychee farms
  • Sugar Cane
  • Potato and Sweet Potato
  • Banana and Macadamia Nut farms
  • Coffee plantations
  • Lime and other citrus farms

We try our best to obtain employment for you to assist in gaining your second year holiday visa.

Also, we are located right in the heart of the Atherton Tablelands.  The Northern Tablelands is where bananas, mangoes, coffee, basil and lychee farms are located.  Many are within twenty minutes drive.  The Southern Tableland farms grow citrus, tea, potatoes, and avocados.

Our accommodation is clean and we try our best to make your stay one that is enjoyable, profitable, and one where you have the best chance of meeting new friends and gaining new skills.

We also live in one of the most beautiful parts of Australia, the Atherton Tablelands, but sometimes called the Cairns Highlands.

Please view our Things to See page which highlights some of the beautiful places, fauna and flora that we have the privilege to live in the midst of.

We just love this place!  Great place to stay and find farm work.  We have met a bunch of new friends and the farm jobs have been great experience!
