This black-and-white photograph shows three Chinese workers transporting bananas on a punt near Innisfail in northern Queensland. The Chinese workers are wearing traditional dress and conical hats and the punt is laden with boxes and stalks of bananas. At the bow of the small flat-bottomed punt two of the men push long poles into the bank or river bottom to propel it through the shallow narrow channel of a waterway, while the third man works the rudder. A banana farm can be seen along the far bank.
