Granite Belt tourism landmark Vincenzo’s at the Big Apple at Thulimbah has closed suddenly.

A sign on the entrance states that “the landlord has re-taken possession of the premises”, understood to have taken place sometime on Tuesday of this week.

The New England Highway landmark north of Stanthorpe has long been a popular stop for both tourists and locals and included a café and deli featuring locally-sourced produce, along with local wines and gift lines.

Comment is being sought from the business operator.

    I wonder how much the rates were on the property ? I recall sometime ago I raised the issue of road into this property to which I was blasted public by a former SDRC manager. That same incident I was advised tourism not farming and agriculture were what was the growth industry to lead the region out of debt. Just find it strange this particular icon is now closed. I can’t help but wonder if the landlords lease included outgoing ie SDRC rates
