The region is ripe with orchards, vineyards, roadside stalls of fresh produce, alongside the picturesque natural Australian bush.
Kalamunda Chamber of Commerce, Executive Officer Karen Stevens said, ”This year is the 16th Bickley Harvest Festival. Be spoilt for choice with award winning, handcrafted wines from boutique vineyards, apple and pear ciders from a Bio-dynamic orchard and sumptuous lunches or afternoon teas from the variety of venues”.
