Our Story


The origins of Flegler Group began as early as 1947 when, Ron, the grandfather of Cameron and Warwick, planted bananas in Tully.


The 1960's sees Ron’s son, Gordon (Cameron and Warwick’s father) plant bananas beside Brick Creek in Tully, Queensland operating as GJ Flegler Pty Ltd.  Significant sugar cane expansion starts to happen.


Gordon applies for and wins a ‘ballot’ block on Tully Gorge Rd under a Queensland Government initiative and moves banana operations to Tully Gorge road.


Gordon purchases the Flegler Family’s “Estate Farm” in Birkalla, Tully. This also the decade that saw the development of the 'nurse sucker' technique. Flegler sees significant expansion through land purchases.


The 90's saw experimentation with heavy de-leafing prior to Cyclone Joy in an effort to save trees from gale- force winds.

Further expansion of land and operations continued and Gordon's son Cameron joined the industry full-time.

The Munro Hill banana farm was established and Gordon's son Stuart takes over full-time management of the Cardstone Road Farm.


Sadly, Gordon passes away leaving the business to his wife, Jenny, and four sons – Cameron, Stuart, Warwick and Rohan.

Warwick begins his mechanical engineering degree whilst Cameron and Stuart begin supplying Coles under the Tropicana brand.

Warwick graduates University and joins the team.

Cyclone Larry caused huge losses to the group but allowed for investigation into cyclone mitigation strategies.


Flegler implemented the industry’s most successful cyclone mitigation strategy for Cyclone Yasi.

This was the decade that saw Stuart step down and Warwick assume a management position.

The Flegler Group was born and through land purchase, expanded to enable more sugar cane to be grown.


Cameron and Warwick purchase land in Mareeba to move banana operations to another region.  Warwick moves his family to the area to operate this farm.
