Sydney Royal National Honey Show

Competitions for Apiculture began in 1888, appearing in a variety of sections before being given their own in 1901 and again in 1995. Classes for honey (comb, creamed, chunk, liquid & granulated), beeswax, small producers and collections remained consistent and in 2000 classes were introduced for candles, wax moulds, mead and pollen.


Honey and other bee products account for about $80 million a year, but the value in agricultural production is far greater, with a Federal Government report saying honey bees contribute between $4 billion and $6 billion.


This is the only National Honey Show awarding Gold, Silver & Bronze medals in the Southern Hemisphere.


The 2016 Sydney Royal Easter Show dates: 17 - 30 March.
