Located on the main road just outside Kingscote township, it was easy to find. The shop offers free honey tasting of local honey from hives spanning across the island. The layout was well organized with parking, cafe, stocked with souvenirs and health supplement products.

Hello there! Thank you for your review! I am glad you enjoyed the ice cream and hone products. We too wish there was a bigger tub although that could be dangerous!

We took the guided honey processing tour and found the whole story interesting and enlightening. The facility has a good variety of souvenirs and a unique honey themed café. Their honey products make great gifts.

This is a shop and a small cafe. You can taste the honey before you buy. It is amazing the difference in the taste of the honey depending on the source of the pollen.
