Huka Honey Hive

Located close to Huka Falls, Huka Honey Hive is a unique honey experience.

FREE entry and FREE honey tasting is just the start. There are live beehives to view, educational movies and fascinating interactive displays which are always a hit with the children. And for the parents, free mead and liqueur tastings!

Take a walk around their beautiful gardens and see the selection of native New Zealand trees and bee-friendly flowers that have been planted over the last 25 years. You’ll also learn about their journey to become sustainability champions!

Huka Honey Hive has delicious ice-creams, sundaes, coffees and teas. Café Hive@65 is a great spot for sitting outdoors in the garden area, soaking up the summer sunshine while indulging in delicious honey flavoured ice-cream. Or in winter, sit inside by the roaring log fire and enjoy the benefits of a hot lemon, ginger, and honey drink.

Core to their business is sustainability and the welfare of bees. They provide a bee-friendly environment and encourage the community and visitors to learn how to support healthy bee populations. The Honey Hive only sources beautiful and sustainable bee and honey-based products from companies which actively improve the welfare of bees.

And with New Zealand’s largest showcase of honey products, you’ll love their 100% pure New Zealand honeys, natural manuka honey skincare range and unique gift ideas, along with an amazing array of natural health and wellbeing products. The friendly and welcoming staff won’t hesitate to tell you all about their favourite honey products!

The staff love to share their knowledge and passion for bees, honey, and the environment too – the Honey Hive’s mission is to save the planet one bee at a time! And if you want to get up close and personal to the bees then consider booking a Honey Shack Tour! Zip on a beekeeper suit and join our beekeeper opening up an actual hive and spin your own jar of honey! Adult, child and family rates available – book online for this unique and hands-on experience!

The Huka Honey Hive is a fabulous and fun place for all the family – come and see what the ‘buzz’ is all about!
