Take the kids out of the city for free tours at Beechworth Honey, just a drive out from Melbourne. This highly awarded, four generation family business is one of the iconic honey brands from Australia. The honey is sourced from apiarists in Victoria, New South Wales, South Australia and Queensland. This provides a wide range of honey that is derived from the best honey producing flora and forests around the country.

A visit provides you and your family with 2 tours to enjoy at separate but nearby locations - The 'Beechworth Honey Experience' and 'Beechworth Honey Discovery' tours.
