Care and attention

At Kwongan Honey, we consider that Communities and Commerce are important elements of creating a sustainable future. Without them, there is no money to invest in the repair of ecosystems and other critical environmental processes. Conservation is the basis of our business which is just a small part of the wider Community. So, without Conservation and Community it is almost impossible to be a viable Commercial entity.

The environment is a source of energy, air, land, water, materials, ecosystems and habitats. It is clear that the health and wellbeing of human society depends on a functioning environment. In turn, the business economy and wealth depend upon a functioning society as well as a healthy environment. This reality underpins the Kwongan Honey approach to business.

Dillon Bay Estate

Dillon Bay Estate was established in 2016 by the Ball family with the aim of developing a non-migratory apiary.

Steve Ball’s interest in bees started with 2 hives in the family’s suburban back garden in Perth. He soon realised that this was not enough for him and the family began searching for a property to expand his hobby into a business. They found the perfect property in the beautiful coastal area of Bremer Bay with the wild Southern Ocean to the south and the pristine Fitzgerald River National Park to the east.

The Ball’s commissioned Nathan McQuoid, Landscape Ecologist, in 2017 to help with the revegetation of a portion of the property that had previously been used for grazing sheep and cattle. The aim is to maintain the diversity and structure of the native vegetation and to increase the abundance and cover of valued honey production species.

Modern commercial beekeepers usually rely on migratory beekeeping – moving hives around on transport to make use of pollen abundance and nectar flows. Non-migratory beekeeping will reduce energy consumption and the carbon footprint from lower emissions. Steve hopes that by reducing bee movements and the mixing of bee populations on a non-migratory apiary, it may improve biosecurity with less chance of transferring any diseases. Western Australia is currently free of many of the diseases that trouble the rest of the world meaning that there is no need to use antibiotic strips in the hives leaving the raw honey produced in Western Australia as 100% pure and natural.

Crystal Lake Farm

Tom & Astrid Long own and operate an 18-hole mini golf course, nestled in beautiful native bushland, bordering the Fitzgerald River National Park, with spectacular views over the lake. The family fun course is guaranteed to provide the odd challenge or two! Followed by a snack at the Kiosk - try either fish & chips or their fabulous ice cream, a cup of coffee or a smoothie. Swan Pedal Boats provide some extra family fun and a wonderful way to explore the lake and to view all the birdlife in the area. Chickens, ducks, sheep and a very friendly cow called Missy Moo help to make a visit to the Bremer Bay Mini Golf & Kiosk a must.

Tom and Astrid have had a lifelong interest in health and fitness owning gyms in Perth and now, the only gym in Bremer Bay. Honey has always been an important part of their daily routine and enjoy and promote the health benefits of raw honey.

Kwongan Honey is available for sale from the Kiosk.

Julie Leenhouwers

Julie worked as a Wool Classer locally and in the Eastern States for many years, until 2003 when she saw the opportunity to establish her dream – Farming! Having grown up in Bremer Bay, she now farms in the area with her partner Greg and their two daughters. Being a mother of school aged children, Julie is actively involved within the School and that of the Community. Current roles include being a Councillor of the Shire of Jerramungup and Treasurer of the Bremer Bay Community Resource Centre.

Julie is committed to maintaining the natural unique environment in Bremer Bay and has re-established vast tracks of native vegetation which has been a wonderful source of pollen & nectar for the bees on her farm.

Peter & Tanya Buckenara

The Buckenara family are a well-established farming family who run a 500 –head cow pure Santa Gertrudis herd on their beautiful farm, bordering the Fitzgerald River National Park, in Bremer Bay. Their steers are sold to processor, Harvey Beef, in Western Australia.
