Pure Tasmanian Honey

100% of our honey is sourced from our beehives in Tasmania: 100% pure honey, absolutely nothing added.

About us – The Honey Pot & Bruny Island Honey

Made for the market - The Honey Pot

The purity of Tasmania's natural environment, with its wild bushlands, unique native flora and crystal waterways, is just one of the reasons Tasmanian honey is so highly regarded. Tasiliquid Gold Honey, and their market stall, The Honey Pot is a labour of love for Grahame, Jacky and Natalie Wright. They've been keeping bees for over 25 years and have about 700 hives located from the Huon and Derwent Valleys, to Bruny Island and as far away as Lake Pedder. They specialise in Leatherwood and Bush, Prickly Box and Manuka Honeys.Being outdoors and working in some of the most beautiful parts of Tasmania is Natalie Wright's favourite part of working for the family business. "We’ve been selling our Honey at Salamanca for as long as I can remember. It’s so important for us to meet our customers and meet people from all over the world."#discovertasmania #seeaustralia #restaurantaustralia #salamancamarket #hobartandbeyond Discover Tasmania

Taking Leatherwood Honey from the bee hives at Lake Pedder.

The Honey Pot and Bruny Island Honey are the houses of honey venues of the Wright family’s proudly-run lifelong collaboration between our family, the bees, and the Tasmanian Wilderness.

We have about 900 hives which we move year-round to follow the blossoming flower trail so our bees can collect a variety of nectar from different floral sources. We take the bees to Lake Pedder, to Bruny Island, and to the Huon and Derwent Valleys, where they collect Leatherwood and Bush, Prickly Box and Manuka Honey.

We extract and package all our own honey ourselves at our facilities in Judbury, Tasmania. We attend Salamanca market every Saturday, and our Bruny and Huon Valley venues are open 7 days. You may also find us at local and state festivals.

 

About our products

We have a range of Tasmanian honeys and associated products to choose from. You can read an overview below, but do come into one of our shops to browse our full range! Selected products are also available to buy online.

Tasmanian Leatherwood has developed a reputation with its strong, unmistakable flavour. Our Leatherwood is sourced from a limited number of hive sites positioned in the South West of Tasmania. The Leatherwood tree itself prefers to be shrouded by a canopy in damper soil, in which it can grow quite quickly. Buy online now!

Returned by ferry from the remoteness of Bruny Island (an isolated island located to the east of the southernmost island state off an island continent!), our Manuka honey is highly prized amongst connoisseurs, both winged and non-winged, irrespective of the recent buzz around the research into its medicinal qualities. Buy online now!

Try this fabulous flavour combination – Huon Valley honey and walnuts. We have a number of gourmet treats to explore… honey mustard, honey mead… come in and see (and taste!) for yourself!

 

Beeswax is a very useful substance, and really should be treasured; a teaspoon of honey represents around 150 nectar collection trips, and bees consume about eight parts honey to make one part of wax. It’s been estimated that this means one pound of wax equates to six trips around the globe!

We stock a range of candle shapes, sizes, and colours.
Honey and beeswax have long been used for cosmetic and healing purposes. We stock a number of Tasmanian personal care products featuring the work of bees. Pay us a visit to see the full range of soaps, creams, and other goodies with which you can pamper yourself.

We aim to have something of interest for all comers, and our range includes far more than we’ve listed here. Also, make sure you check out our observation hive – a glass-walled, working hive with the bees coming in and out from the external wall of the building. See if you can find the queen bee, and watch the bees dance as they let their fellow workers know what sources of food they’ve found.
