The cool mornings of Autumn are upon us, signifying the return once again of the Bickley Valley Harvest Festival. The Bickley and Carmel Valleys will come alive over the weekend of Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 May 2017, as the 19th Annual Bickley Valley Harvest Festival venues open their doors.
A “hidden secret” is how the valley has been described, offering a mixture of boutique wineries, a cider house, local clubs, gourmet foods, stunning flowers and the freshest fruit and vegetables direct from the growers. Where else can you find all this in Perth?
Spend some time looking at all the local art and craft whilst sampling all the valley has to offer then sit for a while as the valley comes alive with local musicians. Make a weekend of the festival and book into one of the celebrated bed and breakfasts so that you can stay in the valley and savour the ambience. Better be quick, this little treasure is becoming more well known every year, the ultimate relaxation experience.
Have a look on facebook and you will find the myriad of opportunities for Harvest Festival weekend, all brought to you by some of the youngest vintners in Western Australia – yes there is something special about the Bickley and Carmel Valley.
This year Explore Tours Perth will be operating two courtesy buses around the valley on the weekend of the festival. Please note these are not suitable for groups of people. Please follow the link for information.
