Stopped with clients for a break. Huge selection of honey products. Most honey types, plus creams lotions etc. Take the time to visit the giant give. Bit scary but amazing. Fun for the kids.

Just a shop unless you want to walk in a huge hive with loads of bees, that costs $4 The shop assistant was very grumpy when we visited.

This is such a great place. I love the hive that you can walk inside and watch the bees at work. Good to see people educating people about bees in such a fun and different way. Even the sign is a hive!
