Stanthorpe’s Big Apple is 13km north of Stanthorpe along the New England Highway in the area called Thulimbah.
Stop of a photo holding up the apple, pretending to eat it – we and visitors alike can’t help but stop to take these fun photos.
Why a big apple?… well Stanthorpe and particularly the Granite Belt villages north of Stanthorpe such as Thulimbah are where all of Queensland’s apple crop is grown. There are orchards everywhere around the countryside and Stanthorpe even has it’s own Stanthorpe Apple and Grape Harvest Festival every second year in February/May.
The Big Apple sits outside what was Vincenzo’s, a cafe and deli which is currently closed. The Big Apple still stands outside and you can drive into the parking area to snap some photos.
Across the road from The Big Apple find Heritage Estate Church Cellar Door & Cafe and across the highway find apple pies and apple cider tastings at Sutton’s Juice Factory, Cidery & Cafe.
