Get a sweet introduction into the wonderful world of bees during this hands-on beekeeping experience. Suited up head-to-toe in a beekeeping outfit, you will discover the life of a beekeeper, the workings of an operational hive, the bees busy at work and more. Take home a goodie bag of honey treats.
Located in the heart of suburban Brisbane, this apiary is nestled amongst large established Australian native trees, gorgeous wildflowers and lovely garden flowers allowing the bees to produce wonderfully unique multi-floral honey products. On arrival, you will meet the master beekeeper and be suited up in a white protective triple layer ventilated beekeeping outfit. Looking the part, you'll head over to the apiary where you'll be given advice on staying calm and what to expect during your encounter. Discover the workings of an operational productive hive, see the smoking process, open their beehive home and check out the busy bees doing their thing. You'll have the opportunity to observe a flow hive, top bar hive and a langstroth hive, and be shown the different stages of bee development. Remember to look out for the queen bee as you peak inside. Best bee-lieve you'll leave with a wealth of new knowledge!
Rich in biodiversity, bees forage happily on the area’s flowering native flora such as the abundant and medicinal manuka (leptospermum scoparium), bright orange poicinana (delonix regia) and bloodwood gum (corymbia gummifera). The flavour of resulting honey is ever-changing with the strong seasonal variation, unlike monofloral varieties often found elsewhere. This results in a honey with a completely distinctive and unrepeatable flavour profile. As part of the day you will spin off your own honey to take home from frames of uncapped honeycomb that has come straight from the beehive!
