The 16th annual Bickley Harvest Festival will be held during the weekend of the 4th and 5th May.

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 vintners wares is a very pleasant day out.

Roadside fruit stalls, asparagus 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.
