Cotton Australia has launched the 2018 Cotton Gap program, and is seeking applications for potential cotton employers and employees.
The program is designed to connect school leavers planning on taking a gap year in 2018 with a job on an Australian cotton farm.
Possible locations range from Central Queensland to the NSW/Victorian border, where cotton is now grown. A map of where cotton is produced in Australia is available on Cotton Australia's website.
Info for cotton employers
