A retired business owner, my passions are cooking, photography and eating. I use all three of these when I write for which is on HubGarden
Pickering Brook is a lovely suburb in Perth, located right in the shire of the City of Kalamunda. It is orchard country surrounded by State Forest Reserves of magnificent Jarrah and Marri trees and hundreds of colourful wildflowers.

This will be a fun family day out on 10th November 2019. It is free entry with free rides.

The entertainment will be:

Italian Ladies' Choir
Bush Poets Society
The Young Violinist group
The Bush Dance Band
Log chopping displays and sleeper hewing
Clydesdale horses and small Australian displays
Classic cars and truck
Australian animals for the children to touch
Heritage photographs and machinery
And more

There will be drinks and Pickering Brook school P & C Sausage sizzle. Morning and afternoon teas will also be available.

The organisers are able to give our visitors a real journey through the history of the district of Pickering Brook, Karragullen and surrounding areas.

Each year, they strive to increase their collection of fruit and will also develop the Heritage Park for the communities which are close. Because of this information, it has allowed old friends to make contact and family histories to now be completed.

This year, they have been successful in getting a grant from the Department of Veteran Affairs for two 'Soldiers on Guard' at their War Memorial. This fabulous piece of art was commissioned to begin the centenary and was a mark of respect to our servicemen and women.

Their machinery and agricultural display shed is now in use and they are starting to make a development of the main industry for the region. The very early settlers established orchards and vineyards in the area and eventually these properties were bought by many Italian immigrants after the Second World War.

The first official meeting of the official Pickering Brook Heritage Group was put on at the Pickering Brook Primary School in the March 1994.
