The Australian government is making a play for Kiwi pickers, offering a cash reward if they cross the ditch.

Canberra is offering New Zealanders $2,000 in relocation fees to move across to pick Australia's summer crops.

It has sparked further criticism of the government here, over the recruitment of harvest workers.
