I parked the car next to an unimposing building that had a mural of eucalyptus flowers painted on the side and made my way inside to be greeted by Shaz. Inside there was a welcoming cafe with honey with distinctive flavours and honey related products on display.
Blue Tree Honey Farm is a real delight, not only in its location but the homemade conserves made from fruit grown on their farm, cafe treats and of course honey. While I was enjoying my Devonshire tea, with homemade blackberry jam, families arrived who had been there the previous day to enjoy another serving of homemade ice cream and milkshakes.
Inside the cafe, there is a small live bee display which is safely behind glass.
A perfect day out as it's about 2 hours from Melbourne through picturesque Gippsland. If you are already in the region or holidaying, it's about 20 minutes from Leongatha, 30 minutes from Inverloch and 80 minutes from Phillip Island.
Blue Tree Honey Farm is open Saturday and Sunday 10 am to 3:30 pm. For more information and check opening hours, view their website.
If you can't make it to Dumbalk look for their produce at stockists in Gippsland. Check their website for stockists . Alternatively, order online or if you are lucky enough you might find Rob and their produce at local Gippsland markets.
