Banana plantations were first established in Australia by Chinese migrants in the 1880s. Today in Australia, bananas are grown in both tropical and subtropical regions. This ensures the industry is diverse in terms of location of farms, and the varieties of bananas grown and their flavour. Bananas are a source of dietary fibre, vitamins C & B, potassium and folate.
