Australia is home to more than just a couple of big things. The Big Apple is only one of a loosely related set of about 150 sculptures and large structures sprinkled across the country. Most of these, the Big Apple included, serve as the country’s top tourist traps and can be found along major roads and highways or between some of the major travel destinations.
The Tennessee Orchard, which is the site of this big apple - Australia has more than just one - is only open on Fridays and weekends, but it’s a popular tourist destination, selling Imperial Gala, Granny Smith, Pink Lady, Sundowner. and other types of apples. (Tennessee has nine different varieties currently available depending on the season.) The orchards are also home to apple juice, the freshest vegetables around, jams, chutneys, marmalades, and free range eggs.
