A tourist visiting Far North Queensland investigates what underpins the tropical north and discovers it is more than just a holiday destination. It is a place where jungle has given way to the cultivation of sugar cane and tobacco, and where prosperous communities of Australians have proved that the Australian tropics are a pleasant place to live in and that industry is generously rewarded there.
