Bickley Harvest Festival
Bickley Valley Harvest Festival returns in 2023 and will be held over the weekend of Saturday 6th & Sunday 7th of May 2023.
We are elated that we can run this festival in 2023 and invite you to celebrate 24 years of wine, cider, spirits, food and primary produce from our Bickley/Carmel and Pickering Brook Valleys.
Our hidden gem in the Perth Hills is only 35km from Perth CDB and spans 18 participating venues across a large area in Carmel, Bickley and Pickering Brook. It is a festival whereby you choose your own adventure and plan ahead which venues you want to visit for your experience. Each venue caters for a different audience and some will require that you book ahead, while others will cater for those who just want to pop in for a tasting, bite to eat, see the open studio or just soak in the amazing scenery of Perth Hills orchards and vineyards.
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 and cider houses with hand crafted wines and ciders.
Take home fresh local produce or treat yourself to 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 vintner’s wares is a very pleasant day out. Roadside fruit stalls, blueberries, avocados and asparagus (when in season) 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.
