An immersive unique and fun close encounter with the most fascinating of natures small creatures, honey bees!
100,000 bees per hive. From site to site the number of hives varies but on average one site can have up to 100 hives. This means when we go out into the Apiary, we can be surrounded by more than 10 million bees. The first time you go out into the field and experience the sound and feeling of those bees around you is one you will never forget. Many have felt overwhelmed by the intensity of this experience but surrounded by the smell of honey, immersed in the greenness of your surroundings, sounds of the birds, the intense hum of the bees begins to fade, and you begin to have what is, dare I say almost a spiritual experience.

This is an immersive experience so you will be suited up in a head to toe in one of our white protective triple layer ventilated beekeeping outfit.

Our Apiary is located in the heart of suburban Brisbane and is rich in biodiversity and our 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)

Sunshine in your day!
My beehives are located in sunny sub-tropical Brisbane, QLD and the bees enjoy copious amounts of sunshine all year round. As an organic minded beekeeper I carefully harvest the delicious liquid golden sunshine so you too can enjoy a little sunshine in your day. You can come for a fun tour of the Apiary (Brisbane based) and if you want a backyard beehive of your very own, I have bees for that too!
So today I got surprised with some bees and Deb and John came and were super patient. They answered all of my questions and gave a hands on experience. I got a very calm colony. They came and made sure my hive was in a good spot.
I was worried that this honey could be a bit too tart with the berries, but it is perfect, just right blend of honey and berries. I find it really nice on salty crackers as well, just to get the hint of sweetness and salt. Thank you so much for your hard work
Echoing all the other reviews - this is honestly an amazing experience! Deborah was a delight during the experience, sharing her knowledge and showing us the many different stages of each hive. She is so passionate about the bees and it honestly rubs off on you. You have time to just stand there and appreciate the glistening honey, listen to the meditative sound of buzzing bees, look at all the different colours of the bee's 'pollen pants' and just watching the bees going about their business when she lifts each frame. We could honestly watch them all day and the smell of the honey is to die for! If you have always wanted to try honey comb - this is the way to experience it!!
Highly recommend this experience - even more so if you are lucky enough to have the space to start your own! We rushed home to enjoy the goodies and to try the delightful creamed honey (it is fantastic by the way)! Thanks John & Deborah :)
