Secret Life of Bees: Open Hive Experience

Find yourself as a bee on the wall as you immerse yourself in a curious experience held at an urban apiary in the centre of Ballarat.

Designed to provide insights into the secret life of bees, this urban farm is owned by local beekeepers Amanda Collins and Scott Denno who will take you on a hands-on journey through a working honey bee hive providing expert commentary on the machinations of a honey bee colony.

Sport your own protective gear, hold a honey frame full of bees, taste warm fresh honey straight from the hive, observe and understand bee behaviours and assigned colony roles and test your own skills as a honey sommelier. Round off your session with some fresh honey from the hive and taste of unique honey flavours in curated honey and mead tasting session. You'll even be able to take home a jar of your favourite Ballaarat Wild Bush Honey.

Available October 2022 - February 2023. This experience includes: an immersive open beehive, hands-on experience, honey and mead tasting and take home 350g jar of Ballaarat Wild Bush Honey.
