Maria Ann Smith had a farm in Eastwood with her husband, and ‘accidentally’ grew the first green apple in 1868, which is now one of Australia’s most well-known exports.

To celebrate Maria's delicious namesake, the City of Ryde hosts the annual Granny Smith Festival in October – the inaugural festival was held in 1985 and it’s now one of Sydney’s biggest street festivals – a true community celebration.

Spend a joyful day out watching the traditional street parade and the crowning of the Granny Smith queen, carnival rides, a huge market and international food fair.
