Initially, we weren’t quite sure if there’d be much to do in the surrounds of our Harvey Hills Farm Stay, but we soon discovered that this little town was a hive of activity when it comes to fresh produce.
|Delightful little town|
|The land of May Gibbs|
Quaint toilets for Colts and Fillies.
|What they were offering free at the visitors’ centre from sheer abundance of harvests|
Harvey Cheese Factory
We went to explore the cheese factory, which was more of a large cafe, selling freshly made cheese, with a small viewing gallery. We had a great time tasting cheese and bought a few to share with our hosts back in Perth.

Next, we drove to the nearby home of Harvey Orange, which was also home to the Big Orange, a 3-storey high viewing tower.
Kev’s Country Meats
Harvey Beef and Harvey Fresh Milk were not open to visitors, but we popped by the very friendly local butcher (who knows many Singaporeans, it turns out) and bought a kg of beef and a rack of lamb. Yums!

Our stay in the unassuming town of Harvey was definitely a highlight of our trip.
