Would you love some manuka honey? Then you've got to make a stop at The Honey Farm in Chudleigh where their special treats will have you buzzing with joy!

The Honey Farm is just under an hour's drive from the northern Tasmanian town of Launceston, nestled under the Great Western Tiers mountain range.

Containing the widest range of honey available on the island, you'll have the opportunity to treat your tastebuds to over 50 tingling different honeys such as Tasmanian Leatherwood and the "indulgent gourmet delights" of the rich Honey Chocolate Paste.

You'll also get a close up look at how the busy bees get on with their work, with the glass exhibition hive allowing visitors to watch a queen bee lay her eggs in the honeycomb and worker bees transform nectar into the tasty 'liquid gold'.

There is also free entry to The Honey Farm museum, with audio visual and static displays to share with visitors the mystery of the bee.

There's so many goodies to try and take home from The Honey Farm store, with your usual manuka honey liquids and pastes on offer, but also a few other special treats!

Try the handmade nougat containing Tasmanian honey, fruit and nuts, available in delicious flavours that include pistachio, cappuccino and ginger.

You can also take home a number of other special gifts including candy, honey jars and bears, glazes, skin products, candles, furniture polish and more!

The Honey Farm is open Sunday to Friday during the summer months (October to March) from 09:00 to 17:00.
