Darwin Sun Industries requires seasonal horticultural workers to pick, pack, and assist with general farm work related to harvesting and maintaining a variety of mango trees.
Pine Creek Mango Plantation began its life as a precious metal mining operation founded by Tom and Regina Harbrow in 1982 as Silver Coin Mining & Prospecting. When mining operations ceased in the 1990’s, and despite advice to the contrary, the Harbrows decided to enter the mango farming business. It turns out that their persistence and hard work eventually paid off! The combination of unique soil composition, elevation, and favorable climate provided for some of the best tasting and earliest fruiting mango trees found in the Northern Territory.
By 1995 Pine Creek Mango Plantation had established a reputation as a boutique grower with 1,600 mango trees and a dedicated packing house. By 2016, the Harbrows were looking to retire and Darwin Sun Industries owner, the Quach family, was seeking to expand and diversify to include one of the most prestigious plantations in the Northern Territory. As of August in 2016, the plantation has over 6,000 trees and is projecting 50,000 mango trays for the season. With the original management team still in place, the plantation seeks to continue the tradition of providing the most sought after mangoes in Australia!!Want to know more? Get in touch!
