Mick Priv­it­era

Big Rigs - - TRUCKIN' IN THE TROPICS WITH ALF WILSON -

A HINO light truck driven by 61-year-old Mick Priv­it­era was vi­tal to the suc­cess of the big­gest event on Palm Is­land dur­ing NAIDOC cel­e­bra­tions.

Mick owns Bris­bane company Aus­tralian Con­cert Pro­duc­tions and the 2003 Hino FG trans­ported the equip­ment for a Unity Gala Party on July 16 be­side the beach.

The company also has a Cairns de­pot and a big thank you to Mick for let­ting Big Rigs snap his pic­ture in front of the Hino af­ter mid­night.

“We brought over the sound, vi­sion and light­ing equip­ment and the stage,” Mick told Big Rigs.

“I pur­chased the Hino 10 years ago sec­ond hand on the Gold Coast and it is per­fect for the job.”

Mick said the trusty Hino trav­els all over Queens­land and has been to Palm Is­land at least six times.

Na­tional Abo­rig­i­nal and Is­lan­der Day Ob­ser­va­tion Com­mit­tee (NAIDOC) Week is held dur­ing July and is a cel­e­bra­tion of his­tory, cul­ture and achieve­ments of Aus­tralia’s indige­nous peo­ple.

“I have been do­ing this since 1978,” Mick told Big Rigs.
