Join a NSW National Parks guide for a fun, hands-on session and explore the world of Australia’s friendly native bees.

We’ll take a short walk outside to see what evidence of bees we can find. Discover where these little pollinators live, what they eat and why they’re so important.

You’ll even get the chance to build your own mini Bee Hotel. Take it home and find out what types of native bees are living in your garden. And of course, you’ll get to sample some delicious honey.
