About this event

“The Sweetness of the Land”

June 5 online conference with beekeeping experts.

A beekeepers conference that fits into your lifestyle, instead of replacing it. Learn how to be a better beekeeper, plus the latest tech news.

Get tips and best practices from the pros.

Jeremy Donovan, invocation & presenter - from the Kuku-Yalanji tribe of FN Queensland: ‘The Sweetness of the Land’

Sit back and enjoy Jeremy's presentation on the significance of protecting our native bees; of our sacred lands; the relationship with traditional owner people have always had with native bees & the sweetness of native honey. Did you know for Yalanji People, there is a direct relationship between the bees and the creation of the didgeridoo?

Trevor Weatherhead, presenter - Australian Honey Bee Industry Council: AHBIC update

Being the peak beekeeping body in Australia, as a beekeeper, you need to be in the know with the latest news & developments that can have an impact on the health & wellbeing of your Hives.

Dr Anna Carrucan, presenter - Wheen Bee Foundation: Powerful Pollinators Project

Australia is home to over 2000 species of native bees, as well as the introduced European honey bee. The Powerful Pollinators Project is your gateway to discovering how to create havens for a diverse range of pollinators, for a sustainable future for our food security and our unique native flora and natural environment.

Lindsay Burke, presenter - Australian Honey Products: Leatherwood & the impact of Bushfires in Tasmania, Australia

If you love a good story, then you will love this interview between Lisa (our Conference MC) & Lindsay. Lindsay is a fifth generation beekeeper and honey magician when it comes to honey and mead! He will fill you with tales of Leatherwood & Manuka being ravished by bushfires & the recovery process; 'peaking' his bees ready for the Leatherwood honey flow; the 3 month window of beekeeping in Tasmania due to climate, seasons & more!

Ann & Jeff Ross, presenters - Hive Haven: Native Stingless Bees

Did you know that Hive Haven are the suppliers of the Native Stingless Bees in a ‘V9’ Native Bee Box at Parliament House?

Follow the story of Ann and Jeff, a couple who embarked on a project to manufacture a native bee box that would reduce the mortality of native bees from a hive overheating. In turn this remarkable bee box enables the holistic harvesting of food grade native honey and propolis.

Open your mind to the future of the fledgling native bee industry, as it moves from a ‘cottage’ to a commercial industry.

Simon Mildren, presenter - HiveKeepers: Innovation in Beekeeping

Technology has not just arrived into our lives, it has arrived into our Hives! Gain valuable knowledge and insights into the advances in technology and applications that can make a difference to your backyard Hives. Here's to healthier and happier bees plus more honey!

Simeon & Paul Valkenburg, presenters - Valkenburg Apiaries: Mobile Honey extraction Tour

Yes, Simeon & Paul are back to present at this year's conference again due to popular demand! This time, you will experience honey extraction on scale - commercial scale! Follow them through the process of honey extraction in their mobile extracting plant. Enjoy a glimpse into the life of a commercial beekeeper.

Jessica Locarnini, presenter - Honey Merchant: Virtual Live Honey Tasting Experience

Jess had us salivating listening to her talk about the descriptive flavours of honey at last year's conference. So we decided to do something new, different & interesting this year and offer you the opportunity to participate in a virtual live honey tasting experience from your own home! Sniff, taste & swill your way through this presentation! Order your Honey Tasting Kit in the Ticketing Merchandise Store and join us for 30 minutes of fun!
