About the Murats:
in 1929, Hymet Murat, known as 'Jack' arrived in Australia at just 16 years of age. He earned a living chopping wood but always dreamed of bigger things. It was in the sun drenched fields of Mareeba where he and other migrant workers sowed the seeds of the tobacco industry and began the family tradition of working on the land. Eventually buying his own farm.
Today, the tobacco is long gone, but almost 90 years later, his descendants remain growing a new crop, some of Australia's finest Arabica know as Jack Murat Coffee.
