Discover the World's Biggest Beehive

Those brave enough to enter the hive will discover first-hand how honeybees make our delicious honey.


Walk right inside to see the honeybees hard at work! Safe and fun for all ages.

Learn the difference between the workers, drones, and queen. Watch the queen lay her eggs. Observe the waggle dance! Safe and fun for all ages. 

We also offer booked school visits as well as a Beekeeping for Beginners course. Students of all levels (including pre-schoolers) will benefit from an educational visit to our hive.

The beekeeper will present a talk appropriate to the age group and is happy to tailor the presentation to suit a specific study unit.

We also take bookings for community/tourist groups.

The hive opens from October until April Easter weekend
