The Hive Apartment
Stay in a homage to Beechworth's gold rush history.
April 27, 2023
You can't get closer to the centre of Beechworth than The Hive Apartment. Owned and operated by Australian honey powerhouse Beechworth Honey, The apartment is the location to explore the historic town and learn about the lives of beekeepers and honeybees.
The building that houses The Hive Apartment was originally built in 1856 — the apartment was actually the original residence of the bank manager of the Bank of New South Wales, one of the oldest bank buildings in Victoria. Beechworth played a large role in the Australian gold rush in the 1800s, and gold was often held here in the 'Gold Office'. Now, it houses a liquid gold: honey.
The self-contained apartment is situated on the first floor, providing an impressive outlook across Beechworth's two main streets, its historic buildings and its original architecture. It features a fully equipped kitchen and spacious dining and living room. The apartment can accommodate up to six guests across three bedrooms. The spacious king room offers a view overlooking Beechworth's iconic clock tower. The queen room offers its own private ensuite while the third bedroom is made up of two single beds.
You won't have long to walk to discover all the local attractions including the Beechworth Honey Bee School, and the Historic Beekeeping Archive & Museum. There are plenty of restaurants or bistros nearby but if you fancy utilising the generous kitchen, there's a supermarket across the road. Visitors can enjoy a honey breakfast basket courtesy of Beechworth Honey.
The Hive Apartments' central location in the heart of Beechworth means you are only a short stroll from local attractions. The Hive Apartment is located 300m metres from The Beechworth Honey Shop, its flagship store with over 40 Australian single varietal honeys to taste plus a working bee hive to see the busy bees at work. There are plenty of restaurants or cafes nearby but if you fancy utilising the generous kitchen, there's a supermarket across the road.
