All of what makes this region so special
The cool mornings of Autumn are upon us, signifying the return once again of the Bickley Harvest Festival. The Bickley and Carmel Valleys will come alive over the weekend of the 3rd and 4th May 2014, as the 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.

New to the Festival this year is the introduction of the Gem Camera Club who have been travelling round the venues taking amazing sunrise and sunset pictures all will be on display at Core Cider House. See the harvest in pictures but sample the produce in real time!

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, the ultimate relaxation experience.

Hop on and off the Harvest Festival bus for a $2 donation, leaving the parking and driving cares to someone else.

Have a look on the page 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.
