Held the first weekend of May, the Bickley Harvest Festival returns for its 23rd year, celebrating the end of Harvest amongst boutique cellar doors and vineyards in the gorgeous Bickley Valley.
Only a 35 minute drive from Perth CBD, the Bickley Valley located in the heart of the Perth Hills Wine Region, enjoys a stunning backdrop of the Darling Ranges where you will discover boutique cellar doors and wineries scattered amongst rolling hills, many family-owned and operated by progressive wine makers.
Come and explore the beautiful region over the Bickley Harvest Festival weekend and discover why the region is considered a hidden treasure by those who visit.
In 2021 we have 19 festival venues specialising in fine wine, cider, gin, fine cuisine, gourmet produce, and art. Study the venue listing and plan your weekend – visit one or visit all!
