Located on Auckland's North Shore, just 30 minutes from the City Centre, the NZMA Beekeeping Experience Centre offers visitors a unique opportunity to experience beekeeping, learn how a beehive works and taste honey fresh off the hive. Globally New Zealand is known as the "land of milk and honey" and beekeeping is a key industry for the country. New Zealand Manuka Honey is world famous for its healing properties. Visitors to the Centre are fitted in a beekeeping suit and full protective gear. This is a hands-on experience and our beekeepers will guide you through what beekeeping involves, how a beehive works, and the other amazing bee products that can be made with the help of bees.
