Island Beehive

Honey as it should be – pure, raw, untreated.

Island Beehive is an interactive visitor centre located in Kingscote. Complete with live beehive, honey and other products. The hand made honeycomb ice-cream is a must try.

Island Beehive produces world renowned, Certified Organic Ligurian Bee Honey. The company extracts around 100 tonnes of honey a year under the stringent guidelines of National Association for Sustainable Agriculture Australia (NASAA) certification.

The Centre promotes the Ligurian Bee story and provides links between heritage, environment and food production.

Peter Davis, owner of Island Beehive, has also restored a 1948 Austin which was used on the island as a fruiterers truck back in the 1900’s. The truck can be viewed at Island Beehive and group tours can be booked in advance. Feel free to get inside and take some photos on your visit.
