Clifford's Honey Farm, Kingscote

4.0
#7 of 26 in Outdoors in Kangaroo Island
Clifford’s Honey Farm is one honey producer on Kangaroo

Island. Dave and Jenny Clifford have been bee keepers since 1965 with the Honey Farm Shop Established in 1993.

Kangaroo Island is the world’s oldest bee sanctuary and is home to the only pure strain of Ligurian Bee in the world. Due to their isolation they have

remained free of the major bee diseases, which infect mainland bees. Bees cannot fly to Kangaroo Island because it is too far, even with strong winds to propel them. To protect their genetic purity and disease free status all bees, beehives, used beekeeping equipment, honey, pollen, beeswax or other hive products are restricted from entering KI.

    All anyone needs to know about this place is honey ice cream. The only way it could have been more enjoyable is if I'd had two servings.

Where to stay in Kangaroo Island

Although most of Kangaroo Island remains relatively underdeveloped in a commercial sense, you'll find lodgings that include everything from spacious suites to economical hostels in communities like Penneshaw and Kingscote. The most expensive accommodations on the island, private cottages and beach houses near the water generally require a two-night minimum stay. For something more flexible and less expensive, consider one of the local campgrounds, many of which offer powered and unpowered sites, as well as cozy log cabins ideal for couples and families with kids.
