About Us

Rural Enterprises Australia been providing rural recruitment services for over 60 years forging strong relationships with farmers and farm workers alike.  In February 2013, Rural Enterprises Australia was purchased by husband and wife team, Emma and Stuart Willis.  They have both travelled and know how wonderful it is to find work and travel at the same time. It provides great opportunities to see parts of the country you would not normally visit as a tourist as well as forming friendships with other travellers and locals.
