Agriculture, Forestry, Fishing

Producing food and raw materials from our natural resources

Overview

Businesses in the Agriculture, Forestry and Fishing Industry use our natural resources (land and water) to produce food, raw materials and goods for sale in Australia and overseas. Sustainable management of our natural resources is a key responsibility.

Agricultural jobs involve the production of crops and the farming of animals. Forestry jobs include growing, maintaining and harvesting forests, as well as gathering forest products (such as timber). Fishing activities include breeding and farming of fish, molluscs and crustaceans.

Industry Considerations
  • Skills are usually learned on-the-job.
  • Seasonal work is common, providing short-term opportunities for workers of all ages.
  • Living in regional Australia is a common requirement. Some roles are located on the coast.
