We visited here our first day on KI and met an awesome assistant who was chatty, knowledgeable but knew when to leave us to our own devices. Yummy honey tasting and the honey mead was mmm!

Hello Joyce. Thank you for your lovely review. Glad you enjoyed your visit with us!

The Island Beehive is certainly worth visiting for anyone who likes honey. Honey products vary from soaps to ice cream with, as expected, a large range of traditional honey to taste and buy. Ideal for a morning tea when visting Kingscote.
