Travelling is therapeutic for the soul, especially if you have a case of 'itchy feet'! To some, travelling is like the very air they breathe, something they cannot live without whereas for some it brings relief from the daily hustle of our hectic lives and a chance to unwind and discover ourselves. Most of us fall in the latter category, where we travel to ease the restlessness of our souls and to take a break from the daily grind of our lives.
This Wanderlust Wednesday, we take you to Bickley Valley, a short drive from Perth City, where you can let go of all the stress in nature's lap and enjoy the wonderful scenery around you.
The Bickley Valley is one of the most scenic parts of the Perth Hills and is surrounded by Walliston, Carmel, Hacketts Gully and Paulls Valley. Bickley is a small suburb within the Shire of Kalamunda and offers picturesque attractions. A small, close-knit town, Bickley will be loved by nature lovers and those looking for some peace and quiet.
Where to stay in Bickley:
One of the first things to do here would be to book a room in the famous Bickley Valley Retreat which is located in the forest and offers a range of outdoor activities and spa treatments in a perfect amalgamation of nature and luxury. A beautiful location coupled with amazing hospitality, the Bickley Valley Retreat would be a great place to spend the weekend.
Another such amazing place to enjoy the weekend is Bickley Valley Cottage.

Packing for Bickley:
Since it would be a weekend trip, you do not need to lug a large suitcase. A small duffel or weekend bag should be perfect. If hiking or camping is on your itinerary, then we suggest taking a backpack which would be easy to carry while you are exploring the flora and fauna of Bickley Valley!
