The Apple and Grape Harvest Festival

The 2020 festival will run from Friday 28 February to Sunday 8 March. 

6 – 8 March is what is known as the ‘big weekend’, with the Grand Parade and grape crushing fun.
Check-out what’s on the program across the whole 10-day event!

The Stanthorpe Apple & Grape Harvest Festival is one of Queensland’s longest running and most successful Festivals! 

The biennial festival is a celebration of the Granite Belt region’s produce and booming wine industry.  An average of 60,000 people attend the festival and this is arguably Australia’s leading harvest festival having a successful track record spanning five decades.

Event Program

Australian Silo Art Trail

The Australian Silo Art movement all began in Northam Western Australia in 2015. Now there are currently 35 silos in the Australian Silo Art Trail with many more yet to come.

Like most states of Australia, Western Australia has many grain silos with their six featured in the collection chosen with careful consideration. 

The invisible legacy, which is just as powerful, is the chance for the tight-knit communities to build a cultural tourism experience which captures the hearts and imaginations of every visitor to these towns and more importantly a sense of community pride.  Read more in Annette’s article  in the latest addition of On the Road Magazine here.
