St Helena lsland is a heritage National Park off the coast of Brisbane, Australia. From 1867 to the 1920s, the island served as a high security prison; then a prison farm until its closure in 1932. The original olive tree was planted in the late 1800s after being brought to the island trom Europe by a visiting magistrate.

The olive tree has been grown for centuries around the world for its fruit, oil and timber. Providing a clasic taste of the Mediterranean, the fruit can be picked and prepared at various stages depending on the desired flavour required.

Olives require full sun and are tolerant of a wide range of soil conditions including extended periods of dryness once established.
