About the Bickley Valley Harvest Festival
The 20th annual Bickley Valley Harvest Festival will be held during the weekend of Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 May 2017.
The Bickley Valley thrives in the cooler autumn sun presenting visitors with a myriad of colours throughout the vineyards, orchards, the abundant deciduous trees and glorious gardens. Visitors can partake in a variety of activities such as enjoying the local artistic talent or indulging in tastings from boutique owner-operated wineries with hand crafted wines.
Take home fresh local produce or treat yourself with delicious lunches – all while taking the time to admire the magnificent surroundings of the Bickley Valley.
Situated approximately 35 minutes drive east of Perth and nestled in the Darling Ranges the beautiful Bickley Valley forms part of the Perth Hills, Western Australia’s best kept secret.
Beautiful forests, extraordinary wildflowers, tranquil bushwalking trails, bird and animal life, creeks and waterfalls, are some of the scenic attractions. Vistas of vineyards and orchards in the valleys make motoring a delight and driving into the Perth Hills to sample the vintners wares is a very pleasant day out. Roadside fruit stalls, asparagus straight from the farm, beautiful open gardens and fresh flowers, delight the visitor. One can stay at any of the country-style bed and breakfast facilities for the ultimate in peace and relaxation, explore the forest from the back of a camel or buy a memento from one of the local potteries or art and craft stops.
All of what makes this region so special is celebrated at the annual Bickley Harvest Festival so mark the dates in your diary!
We look forward to seeing you all there.
