Some native bees produce honey (including the Carbonaria and Hockingsi) however it is much different in appearance and taste to European bee honey. Firstly the native bees can only produce around 1 kg per year. The native bees keep their honey in ‘pots’ and are often referred to as Sugarbag bees. The taste is strong and aromatic due to the amount of plants and flowers they can collect from. It has many traditional uses for the aboriginal people as bush tucker and medicinal purposes.
