The Best Spot in Australia,
to Do Your Farm Work. Returning 2024!

Team 2022 update

Returning 2024

Following the long awaited return of the backpackers The 88th Day will be back. We are working tirelessly to return to the place we were before 2020.

The pandemic changed so much for backpacking in Australia and The 88th Day was majorly affected. Unfortunately we have been forced to close our doors to backpackers for almost 3 years now.

However from late this year that will change, we are set to return to business from 2024, this means our fantastic accommodation will be available once again. The team can't wait to welcome you all back and we will continue to keep our website updated with news in the coming months. Please register your interest and we will see you soon.

Farm Share House Accommodation

Staying In Our Accommodation For Your 88 Days

Here at The 88th Day we ensure you complete your 88 days regional farm work without accumulating debt or wasting your precious time in Australia.

Join fellow backpackers by staying in one of our properties 20 minutes north of Adelaide and use our app to find work. You will be staying in a 4 bed dorm inside one of our spacious share houses. Every share house has a full kitchen, living room and outdoor space as well as free WiFi. Bills are included in your $150 per week rent and you can stay for as long or as little time as you please.

Before you move in we will be in touch to arrange a move in time/date so you can meet the team, and we can discuss best practices for completing your farm work.

Why Choose Adelaide?

The Northern Region of Adelaide contains one of the highest concentrations of food and wine producers in all of Australia. From giant potato/onion producers to high end Chateau's this region offers jobs in every aspect of specified work.

Many of the jobs in this area provide regular work schedules and hourly pay, giving you a great shot at completing your farm work quickly and saving plenty of money while you're at it.

Adelaide is a major city with a population of over 1 million people, the idea that you could complete your regional work somewhere like this seems unrealistic. But because under the Governments specified work initiative the entirety of South Australia is listed as rural, you can live and work just minutes outside of the city centre. This makes the experience far more interesting and you get to enjoy this fantastic city rather than living in a small farming town 8 hours outside of Brisbane.

We love Adelaide and living just outside the city, sharing the experience with fellow backpackers many of our guests have stayed long after completing their 88 days.
