  • Great selection of honey. Nice place to stop by for a coffee or just to learn a lot about bees. They offer a good selection of gift items too-the price may seem a bit high. We liked the cup gum honey and sparkling honey drink. Very friendly staff. We went there last year and our visit was very pleasant.

  • Very good. The products on sale are excellent and the displays are even better. There is also a Cafe with a well designed indoor / outdoor feel to it. A very worthwhile stop on your way into Kingscote.

  • Very enjoyable visit. Loved the tour behind the shop front. Helps to appreciate how much work goes into a jar of honey. And I'm not just talking about the bees.

  • Island Beehive have their honey and cider available for tasting and there is much on offer. The displays are interesting and bring some importance to the efforts to protect bees and their habitats. Food was delicious and the honey comb ice cream was flavoursome. There is a Perspex bee hive in the room allowing you to get up and close to the queen bee and her drones. The old Austin delivery van out the front has been restored to a beautiful state.

  • The tour was very informative. Really enjoyed seeing how everything worked. Plus the tastings were delicious.
