I am a keen traveller. Currently rediscovering my own backyard and the rest of Australia. I enjoy nature, history and the quirkiness of what the world has to offer.

Honey, honey
Knowledge of bees and producing honey, honed over four generations brings Beechworth Honey to the public. Beechworth Honey has two premises in Beechworth, both on Ford Street. One is the retail shop and the other is the Beechworth Honey Garden.

A hotel that's buzzing.

The Beechworth Honey Garden is located at the rear of an old bank. The building, which was the Beechworth branch of the Bank of New South Wales, established in 1817, used to hold the gold discovered nearby and obviously money. Now this grand old building that housed the town's gold, informs visitors of the liquid gold that the Beechworth bees provide in the form of honey.

The informative garden educates the public on the need for bees and how plants are dependent on the bees pollinating them.

As you enter the garden, there is a glass display that encloses a bee hive where you can view the bees hard at work. The bees leave the display in their search for pollen and enter again laden through the top.

Egyptians have been using honey in their food and body products for thousands of years. So, walk like an Egyptian and make your way to Beechworth Honey's retail store at the top of the hill.

There is a honey for everyone's taste. I was bee-dazzled by the different types of honey that were on offer. Going on a picnic or enjoy a cheese platter? Then have a look at their honey to accompany cheese.

There is a large range of body products, from lip balm to body scrubs, which will help you look sweet.

Enjoy the honey-infused ice cream or a refreshing honey drink. Honey and eucalyptus lollies to soothe a sore throat or just to enjoy.

Beechworth Honey is well-worth a visit, just to learn more about bees and the hard work they do.
