What you'll do

Want to experience something different?….really different. Learn about the intriguing world of honey bees in a way that few get to experience: through the hands­-on exploration of an active, living beehive! Your tour, led by Nathan Stewart, a professional Doreen based beekeeper, will include suiting up in protective gear, lighting a bee smoker, and spending two hours as real life Beekeeper. Initially Nathan will give you some tips on what to look for inside a hive including how to spot the Queen and where to look to potentially witness the birth of a new worker bee. Then, together we’ll lift the lid of a busy hive, watch bees at work creating honey, pull out a frame of honey ready for extraction, and get up close with more than 100,000 bees! After, we carefully close the lid, we’ll sample some of the honey direct from the hives while enjoying a refreshing honey tonic compliments of Karen, Managing Director of Rivers of Yarrambat (who is also a passionate beekeeper herself).

What's included

Food
Delicious Food Platter - Delight your senses with a selection of locally sourced ingredients from the Rivers Cafe.
Drinks
Refreshing Honey Tonic - with a touch of lime and ginger
Equipment
Rental of Bee Suit, Gloves & Garters
