Stanthorpe is where ALL of Queensland’s apple crop is grown – so it’s only fitting that it’s here we would dedicate a day to all things apples!
The Granite Belt is renowned for the freshest, crispiest, crunchiest, tastiest and juiciest Apples in Australia. From Jonathan, Pink Lady, Red Delicious, Golden Delicious, Gala, Sundowner, Kalei, Jazz to the famous Granny Smith Apple; we grow them all and harvest time during the festival is the best time to eat Stanthorpe Apples!
On Apple Day there will be the Apple Pie Competition and Apple Jelly Competition. The pastry must be homemade (not shop bought) and fresh (not pie) apples are to be used for the filling.
Don’t forget to register for the Longest Apple Peel competition. Bring your favourite peeler as there is fierce competition for the bragging rights. A lot of fun and laughter is to be had on the way, with a Toffee Apple demonstration afterwards.
Wineries will even be present to offer wines to match apple tastings.
Competition Categories: Apple Pie (juniors and seniors categories) and Apple Jelly
