Fun at Banana Barracks

Banana Barracks Working Backpacker Hostel is situated in the country town of Tully, Far North Queensland. Tully, which is about 148km south of Cairns, is located between Mt Mackay (723m) and Mt Tyson (687m).

Farms of melons, pumpkins, and sugarcane surround Tully but mostly...BANANAS! Generally, boys are recruited to ‘hump’ or ‘hang’ the banana bunches while girls ‘sort’ the bananas or ‘prune’ the banana trees.
