Our visit to West Coast Honey
Wheatbelt Kids visited West Coast Honey last year where the lovely Tina gave us a private tour of the premises. If you have ever driven through Gingin to Lancelin you have probably seen the signs for West Coast Honey ‘Heaven from a Hive’. Maddison and I decided that we would visit and find out more.
West Coast Honey opened to the public in September 2003 as a way to add value to the Fewster family honey business, while educating the general public on the environment and the honey bee.
West Coast Honey has free parking, free entry and free honey tasting. Visitors are able to view the live bee display in the cafe and the extraction process of honey from the bee hives to liquid (this is seasonal and only when working).
Visitors can enjoy homemade delights and beverages in the cafe, which includes a childrens area with toys and colouring.
The shop includes local produce and gifts involving honey products including candles, wax wraps, and honey ice cream.
Maddison and I loved our tour and learnt so much about the honey process from our discussions with Tina. Maddison’s favourite part was the live bee display and trying to find the queen bee. We also enjoyed the free honey tasting and honey ice cream.
West Coast Honey is a great learning and educational experience and welcomes group bookings and homeschoolers.
