Sugar do-do-do-do-do-do ahhh, honey honey! In our household, The Bee Movie gets played just about every single day since our little one developed a fascination with bees, flying, and sticky, gooey delicious honey! To further develop this eager fascination with bees and honey, we thought it was high time we looked into the amazing honey farms in Sydney and where you can source their fresh and scrumptious honey from.

Centennial Parklands

Did you know that Centennial Parklands produce honey? We didn’t either, but now that we do, we’re very eager to sample honey that’s made right in the heart of Sydney. Every batch of Centennial Parklands honey is 100% raw and unheated, meaning you know you’re getting only the good stuff. While you can’t actually visit the 8 European beehives that currently reside within the protected bird sanctuary, you can buy fresh honey jars from various locations in Centennial Park – yum!  

Location: Centennial Parklands, Sydney
