Slovenia has a long history of beekeeping, and was the instigator for the UN World Bee Day, so it is fitting that we will be holding a lead-in event on Saturday 13th May. We are delighted to offer a guided tour of the beautiful AZ beehive within the gardens, followed by honey tasting from 12 noon through to 3pm. You can even get into a bee suit and meet the bees close up!
You won't just get to try the honey from this hive - we have collected honey from all over Canberra to showcase the distinctive flavours that come from different bee colonies as they forage in our gardens and streetscapes. The tour is supported by Canberra Region Beekeepers, and they will have experienced beekeepers to show you the hives and talk about what is involved in keeping honeybees in the region.
