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.
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.
