Australia has over 170 species of Banksia of which about 20 are worked by beekeepers for honey crops.
They come in a variety of sizes from small shrubs to trees and all but one species occur naturally in Australia. The flower heads are made up of hundreds (and thousands) of tiny flowers grouped in pairs. The flowers are usually red or yellow.
The greatest diversity of Banksias are found in south western Australia, where 60 species have been recorded. They are also common on Australia’s east coast. Banksias tend not to grow in rainforest or arid regions.
The flavours of single varietal honey reflect a plant source and its unique flowers, pollen and nectar. Our single varietal honeys are a true reflection of nature with each plant species creating distinctly different colours, tastes and textures of honey.
“Our aim is to educate people on the diversity of uses for honey and the fact 65% of Australia’s agricultural produce is pollinated by honeybees. This reveals just how important they truly are to our food security.”
