Welcome to our Garshey's Team Beautiful

Here's a little history of who we are and what we do.

2021 Pruning Season

Our pruning season starts in the end of June and generally goes until early September.

Thank you for visiting our page. 

We have most of our contracts in the Willyabrup area of the Margaret River region (about 20 minutes north of Margaret River Township along Caves Road).

We invest a lot of time into our greatest asset – YOU!  Having said that, we generally look for team members who are genuinely interested in vineyard work and want to learn the ‘hows’ and ‘whys’ of what we do in the vineyard.  In the Pruning season, we usually run about 15 staff and we work with you, teaching you everything you need to know so that you can earn good money.

On the subject money, what are we offering?

Our piece rates are annually reviewed, and our method of reviewing is to analyse what the previous year’s staff earned and if necessary, adjust the upcoming years pruning work so that we are in line with the Government Award guidelines that state: AN AVERAGE WORKER SHOULD BE ABLE TO EARN HOULRY PAY PLUS 20%. In 2021, this would be: Hourly: $25.15 PLUS 20% ($05.03) = $30.18 per hour.  We offer an hourly safety net while you’re learning but we can honestly say to you, if you cannot achieve above hourly pay on the rates we are offering, then you might not be suitable for vineyard work.

It is NOT in our interest to employ staff on a low wage as this is counter productive to our business plan which is: the more our staff earn, the happier and more productive they will be!

We also work very closely with Rural Enterprises which is a government department that has been set up to find people farming work, so after the season finishes, if you want further work, we can help you with this as well!

Subnote: we recommend you bring headphones as our team LOVES to sing to music, so we get very loud!

At Garshey's Team Beautiful, we contract in several vineyards in the Willyabrup area, which is about 20-25 minutes' drive south of Dunsborough, in the heart of the Margaret River wine region.

We are a very small team that usually consists of:

  • Harvest (grape picking season) : 30-40 team members
  • Pruning (Winter season) : 08-12 team members
  • Canopy Management (Spring/Summer growing season) : 08-10 team members

If team members need accommodation, we recommend the
