It’s not every day locals see a tractor trundling through Geraldton, but business and homeowners on Durlacher Street may have spotted a green beast squeezing into the Queen Elizabeth II Seniors and Community Centre’s carpark recently.

The tractor was the transport of choice for Nagle Catholic College student Jack Edwards, who decided to bring his date, Zara Johnson, to the Year 12 ball in the true style of a farmer.

The vehicle may have clashed with the fancy limousines expected of a Casino Royale-themed night, but it was popular enough to win Jack and Zara an award.
