Honey Festival 2017
It’s FREE and FUN!!
We have plenty of entertainment for the kids with face-painting, ‘the honey trail’ – a fact finding mission with prizes, a scitech stall and waggle dances to dance to! For beekeepers we have ezyloader cranes to be demonstrated by Mark Stafford and one on one chats with the beekeepers. For bakers (both big and small) we have our Honey Cake Competition, with adult and under 12 submissions. And for everyone else we have loads more free, fun and educational activities to be a part of, such as demonstrations, free honey tastings and the opportunity to sign up for an accredited course in beekeeping!

Come join us at the free annual Honey Festival. See beekeepers loading their hives onto trucks, learn how to get started in beekeeping and maybe even sign up for an accredited course in beekeeping!
Learn about how important bees are at the pollination tent and how to start your own bee friendly native garden with tips from Tintuppa Nursery.
Purchase food and drinks at the event or BYO picnic, but bee sure to try taste all the different honeys being showcased by many talented beekeepers from all across the area.
