Overview

Visit Island Beehive to learn about Ligurian Bees. Kangaroo Island was declared a sanctuary for this docile bee in 1885 in order to protect the bee's purity.

See the production factory, take a guided tour, and enjoy free tastings of organic honey. Enjoy delicious scones in the cafe and visit the shop for bee products, beeswax candles, souvenirs, health products and local arts and crafts.

Island Beehive is a Tourist Centre on the outskirts of Kingscote, established by Peter Davis who is committed to the protection of the Ligurian Bee heritage. It has excellent facilities including conference, information technology and is wheelchair friendly throughout.

Island Beehive is very proud of its organic honey, which won "Best Organic Product" in the national, Audi sponsored, Vogue Entertainment plus Travel Awards announced in November 2005.

Guided tours operate every 30 minutes. Coach, group and after hours tours are available on request. Phone bookings are essential for group tours. Contact Island Beehive for current prices. Free admission to the information centre, shop and cafe.
