It’s a list usually dominated by bankers, property tycoons and mining magnates. But now, these unlikely Queenslanders are taking over.

Three hi-vis-clad farmers from rural Queensland have become unlikely rich-listers after turning profits from their parent’s watermelon farm into a “unicorn” business.

Brothers Peter, Andrew and Lex Greensill, from Bundaberg, have made their debut on the Financial Review Rich List for 2019, taking out the 75th spot thanks to their stunning combined wealth of $1.21 billion.

They pulled off the epic feat after investing cash from the family’s farm into Greensill, a supply chain financing business founded in 2011 by Lex Greensill, which scored a $336 million capital injection from growth equity firm General Atlantic last year.
