Welcome to Yarra Valley Bees

We are beekeepers located in the picturesque Yarra Valley, who are passionate about honeybees and their important place within our environment. Our aim is to make keeping a bee hive accessible to everyone, whether you have space for a hive that we maintain for you, or you are interested in starting and maintaining your very own hive. We are here to help! With workshops, mentoring and all of the products required to get started with your own beekeeping experience.

One of the most important ways that we can ensure the survival of these amazing and useful creatures is to educate our children - we need to put our children into a situation where they will have a sense of wonder...

"What they will not value, they will not protect, and what they will not protect, they will lose."

We have a range of educational incursions designed to share this wonder of bees with young children in a safe, fun and engaging way. You can read more about Yarra Valley Bees Incursions on our education pages.

We also offer education opportunities for adults interested in starting their own beekeeping adventure in the form of workshops and mentoring. For the complete beginner we can teach you everything you need to know to get started with our hands on approach, to providing all of the gear to get your hive set up and you geared up to maintain your hive.
