Það sem verður gert

Want to experience something different?….really different.

Learn about the intriguing world of honey bees in a way that few get to experience: through the hands­-on exploration of an active, living beehive!

Your tour, led by Nathan Stewart, a professional Doreen based beekeeper, will include suiting up in protective gear, lighting a bee smoker, and spending two hours as real-life Beekeeper.

Initially, Nathan will give you some tips on what to look for inside a hive including how to spot the Queen and where to look to potentially witness the birth of a new worker bee. Then, together we’ll lift the lid of a busy hive, watch bees at work creating honey, pull out a frame of honey ready for extraction, and get up close with more than 100,000 bees!

After we carefully close the lid, we’ll sample some of the honey direct from the hives while enjoying a refreshing honey tonic compliments of Karen, Managing Director of Rivers of Yarrambat (who is also a passionate beekeeper herself).

Other things to note:

-Wear casual comfortable clothing with Long Pants, Socks and protective shoes/boots. Avoid wearing dark colour clothing, perfume or aftershave.
-Photos of your experience will be sent afterwards.
-Weather: On rare occasions, our Tours may need to be postponed, rescheduled or cancelled due to severe weather. If needed, we will contact you the day before to make arrangements.

Hi, I'm Nathan Stewart your local Beekeeper.

Beekeeping is really a 'hobby gone wild' for me. I'm passionate about creating awareness for Bees and the important role they play in our environment and food production.

I really enjoy sharing my knowledge about the intriguing world of honey bees in a way that few get to experience: through the hands­-on exploration of an active, living beehive!

Nathan and Candace are clearly passionate about bees and how we interact with them. The tour was not just about bees; it was also about the environment, sustainability and how we can do our part to protect these magnificent creatures. I highly recommend this experience to everyone.

We had a wonderful time with Nathan on his bee experience. We never realised how clever and intelligent these smart little animals were! Loved learning all about them and how they make honey. Nathan was an excellent host, taking time to answer everyone's questions, before taking us on a fascinating tour of the hives. We were all safely suited up then allowed to get up close to the bees to see them in action. The tour was rounded off with a delicious lunch and some honey, and wax candles to take home. I highly recommend this tour to everyone!

We throughly enjoyed our bee experience with Nathan and his lovely partner. We learnt sooooo much about the bees themselves, their behaviour, their stages of life and living requirements while belonging to a hive. We enjoyed a delicious plate of assorted nibbles and were we all got to chat amongst ourselves with Nathan. The venue is beautiful, clean and you could spend a whole day there exploring the plant Nursery and gift shop after your bee experience. Fantastic day out.

I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who would love to know more about bees and honey! 🐝 🍯 Nathan and his partner have been excellent hosts and were kind enough to pick my friends and I from the train station when I told them that we had transportation issues. They were also very lovely and accomodating in helping us surprise my partner for his birthday 😊 Overall, I am very pleased with this experience and enjoyed every bits of it!
