It all started in the 1880’s when gold was discovered in the hills surrounding Beechworth where Jodie’s great grandfather Benjamin Robinson became a beekeeper on the Victorian goldfields. Move into the forest room where large Australian eucalypts surround you and watch as Steve gathers honey from towering forests and the underlying flora.
Take a seat for your next journey and watch our suppliers extract the honey to be carefully sent to Beechworth Honey. The liquid gold virtually goes straight from the forest to your breakfast table, 100% pure and natural, as nature meant it to be.
Join our junior reporters along with renowned scientist Dr Dennis Anderson who tell a 21st century cautionary tale of what will happen if we don't protect our honeybees. Without them we would lose a third of the world’s food supply.
Get up close to our celebrity chefs as you are inspired to discover the many ways of turning something ordinary into something extraordinary, just by adding some pure Beechworth Honey.
Your visit is sure to foster a much deeper understanding of the care that goes into bringing one of nature’s true pleasures into our lives and you will never think of honey as just honey again. We hope you enjoy your journey and insight into the fascinating world of Australian honey and bees.Group Visits
See Live Bees
Have you ever seen a working bee hive? At Beechworth Honey Experience we give you the rare opportunity to safely look inside a colony and observe the amazing workings of our honeybees. Watch the communal activities of the hive as the bees travel from inside their hive to the outside world via the clear viewing tube. It is both fascinating and mesmerising to all ages.
Each colony has three castes of bees – a queen, drones and workers, so make sure you don’t miss out on the fun of finding each one!
The Ultimate Australian Honey Tasting Experience
Taste over 30 different varieties of delicious Australian honey… one of nature’s truly amazing products. Our friendly customer service team will guide you through a tasting sensation of our diverse product range. Part of the delight of Australian honey is it’s exciting and varied flavours combined with the rich thickness which results from the diversity of flora and soils of the Australian landscape.
Honey flavours are determined by the flowers the bees visit and source the nectar from. Colours from the palest translucent gold signaling the honey has been produced from ground floras, to the deep rich reds and almost black coloured honey which are produced in the higher mountainous or coastal areas. We challenge you to find your favourite and ‘bee hooked’ or taste as many as you like – IT’S FREE!
