They have nice honey to taste and they sell really nice honey chocolate. Also honey products like normal honey and honeycombs.

Thank you so much for your review, glad you enjoyed it. If you did not do the tour we recommend you do it if you ever visit again. You will learn a lot about our bees :)

Lots of nice Kangaroo Island honey and wide range of other honey and 'bee' products to buy; a tour of the honey factory if you wanted (fee involved), and teas/cakes. OK for adults, but not really much of interest for children, so about a 30 minute visit max - mostly a shop/café.

A lovely stop off. Plenty of bee related souvenirs. Free honey tasting. The girls enjoy having their photo taken by the Bee outside of the premises.

Free honey tastings, honey ice-cream, gifts and souvenirs for the whole family, viewing of the bees at work, locally made products and honey products made right there at the store. Top it all of with some friendly staff and you have a great place to visit. Free entry to the store with the option of taking a behind-the-scenes tour for a [very] small fee. The honey is delicious (especially the creamed variety), but I highly recommend the honey and almond fudge on the front counter - delicious!

This business in Kingscote does a very good job to inform and educate tourists about the Ligurian bee and the industry on the Island. Tasting areas are great and prices are good. The honey is unique in its flavour and all who visit seem to walk away with a swag of goodies. Please don't leave the Island until you have been to this shop.
