Raena was en route to a sheep farm in rural South Australia, when the farmer — who had offered to pick her up — started sliding his hand on her inner thigh, telling her she was his "type of backpacker".
"Sexual harassment with the farmer started from the first day I arrived there," she said.
Raena said he singled her out, proposing they spent her first day on the beach, not working.
"I told him 'no', but then he got upset and told me that since he is paying me, I'm paid to do whatever he wants — whether it's going to the beach with him, going for a drive with him, or scooping dog poo," she said.
At the beach, Raena said the farmer was visibly "upset" she had decided to wear a one-piece swimsuit instead of a bikini.
Throughout the farm work, she said she was confronted by inappropriate behaviour.
"The farmer would compliment me in front of his wife, saying how sexy my legs were, or how he wants to see me drive the tractor to see my boobs jiggle," she said.
"He would constantly take photos of me, when I was bent over or doing something. I'd ask him why he took a photo of me and he said it's simply for me to show the Government I worked."
