Vineyards and Valleys on a Sunday afternoon

The Packing Shed, Bickley, WA

We often visit a winery on a Sunday afternoon and today was no exception.  We’ve not tried this one before and were not disappointed.  Set in the rolling hills of Bickley and just a 35 minute drive from Perth, you could imagine that you were in the deep countryside.  There are so many wineries dotted throughout these hills, many with restaurants and cafes.

This winery has a restaurant attached, where they offer breakfast and lunch.   Today we chose a delicious chilli and lime bruschetta and pork belly with sweet potato chips which was just enough for the two of us to share and paired with the classic white for me and a Pinot Noir for hubby.   Hubby enjoyed the red so much he took a bottle home. 

With his bottle of Pinot!

Love the description

After lunch we had a walk around this beautiful vineyard and took a few snaps.  There are trees and hills as far as the eye can see, it’s so relaxing to spend a few hours here.

On our drive back I asked Anthony to stop so I could take a photo of the road behind us, as I stepped out of the car I saw two kangaroos hopping through the bush.  I couldn’t believe it when one stopped and looked at me and actually waited while I adjusted my camera to take a photo of him! 

Even after living in Perth for 14 years, I still get a thrill when I see a kangaroo in the wild!
