Nicholas & Lesharn
My partner, Lesharn, and I, Nicholas, have been keeping both Australian Native Bees and European Honey Bees for over 5 years in the Byron Shire. We're passionate about keeping bees as naturally, sustainably, and bee-friendly as possible. I've completed a variety of natural beekeeping courses, a permaculture design certificate and University study which has contributed to my understanding. I've been an AirBnB Super Host for over 4 years. In that time I've had a lot of experience showing guests around our property and educating them on natural beekeeping, vegetable gardening and permaculture
Where you'll be
Everything is located on our 17 acre property at Broken Head adjacent to a 400 acre Nation Park with pristine beaches and nature walks only a 2 minute drive away. This AirBnB experience is only a short drive from the main hub of Byron and is a great way to start exploring the natural beauty of Broken Head
