We all know that honey comes from bees, but have you ever wondered how it gets from the bees to your kitchen (and onto your toast)? Then check out Superbee Honeyworld and wonder no more.
The tasty treat is the main attraction at Superbee (35 Tomewin Street, Currumbin), a working honey farm located opposite Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary on the Gold Coast. Superbee produces and exports honey and bee products to more than fiften countries around the world.
Improve your photography and meet other keen photographers
Superbee aims to entertain and educate tourists about the exciting world of bees and their products. Visitors will see the entire process from flower to finished product when they take a tour of the facility. See how bees produce honey in the hives and listen to bee keepers explain and demonstrate how the honey goes from hive to pot. You'll also see honeycomb extraction, watch the keepers care for the bees and learn more about the products that bees produce.
Of course, there are plenty of opportunities for taste testing the delicious variety of flavours on offer at Superbee, and if you find something you like you may be able to purchase it from the gift store, which sells honey, royal jelly, propolis, bee pollen, ginger and honeycomb.
A trip to Superbee Honey World makes for a fun and inexpensive day out; admission is free and it is free to taste test the varieties of honey. Superbee is located on the Gold Coast and is open from 8.00am until 5.30pm daily.
It doesn't sound like you have actually been inside superbee at currumbin from the measure of your review. The place is very dated, grubby, poorly displayed and in need of some fresh paint. Superbee is the kind of place that you would simply "pop" into if you were at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary for the day and felt like wandering over the road to have a look. I certainly wouldn't go to Superbee if I was looking for an enjoyable day out.

I took my nephew to Superbee about six months ago. I agree that it is a bit dated but I didn't find it particularly grubby and thought it was a good, cheap attraction for families. But to each their own, of course :)
