Visit the farmgate shop (built in a recycled shipping container) to stock up on raw honey, delicious sauces, chilli honey, vanilla honey as well as farm-made beeswax balms, soaps and teas, eggs, garlic, rosellas (native hibiscus) and more. Or pay to enter the farm to see a real, sustainable farm in operation. ($10 child, $12.50 conc, $15 adult). Home to a menagerie of friendly animals; an inspirational and educational 5 acre garden full of useful plants (edible, medicinal, dyes, beverages, building materials etc); and a Native Australian Bee Sanctuary complete with "Bee Motel"(where you'll learn about Australia's 1600 species of bee including some very special stingless ones who make a divine and rare honey). The farm also has a display of solar ovens and solar kettles, including the largest solar oven in Australia which cooks up delicious treats. This is a small family farm, so don't come expecting the Hunter Valley Gardens, but it's a special place doing special things! The farm and farmgate shop are open 8.30am-2.30pm (with tours at 10am, 11.30am & 1pm), Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday & Tuesday (closed Wed & Thu). Open every day in school holidays. Also available for bus group tours and morning teas. 1hr south of Port Macquarie (20 min north of Buladelah) take the Nabiac exit and travel just 1 minute west on Wallanbah Rd.

We arrived a little late for a full tour so we had one of the girls show us around. The animals are very cute and very well looked after. We also got to try some tea and honey. This is a fun stop!

Myself and my two children (ages 7 and almost 3) visited Honeycomb Farm on the public holiday last Monday and enjoyed every minute of our visit. We were greeted by smiling faces when two English WWOOFers, Jenny and partner welcomed us to the farm.

we had a top time donning our bee suits and meeting and learning all about the bees - it was more fun than I had expected and I had been really looking forward to it. After the bee keeping experience we had a cuppa and tasted a whole range of honeys and went for a tour around the permaculture farm... More

We love that people can visit for a few hours at the tourism attraction, a few nights as farmstay guests, and a few weeks/months as wwoofers...
