BEECHWORTH, BEES & HONEY.


On a quick trip back from Falls Creek last week we dropped in for lunch as my husband had to try the the pies from the famous pie bakery, he ate enough that bordered on embarassing!
Beechworth is a place I have wanted to visit for a long time and after our fleeting visit we are already planning a week there to discover the town and its surroundings.  I was able to drag my husband and his bloated belly from the pie shop to take a sneak peak at the famous (everything here is famous - see Ned Kelly), Beechworth Honey shop.
You can see live bees as they work in their hives, 
try skin care,
drink lemon drinks, 
and buy honey wax candles.

But of course the main thing is the honey, the huge amount of varieties is mind-blowing.  We tasted most types and came home with Creamed Honey and Orange Blossom.

It looks like the next trip wont be far away, as we need to replenish the honey jars pretty soon!

  19. The Beechworth Honey Experience is one of the must see destinations in Beechworth. Not only does it offer some amazing honey products but the interactive tour and bee display is amazing. Even for those of us living here rarely does a month go by when my 3 year old does not ask to visit the honey shop!
