George Palmer The Cane Farmer / by Ethan Astall

George Palmer, a true legend of Australia - found volunteering in his youth at the local Innisfail driver reviver (although surely not a stressful position seeing as it’s only ever open maybe one day a year, but none the less the free tea was warmly welcomed). This young chap, entering his eighties grew up on the sugar cane farms of the tropical north working for his dad soon after popping out of the womb, before then moving to the big smoke of Rockhampton but has gladly since returned to his sugar cane roots after coming to terms that central Queensland was a little to cold to the oven temperatures of FNQ. #facesofaus
