Queen’s Terrace Café at Parliament House will be humming on Sunday 20 May when it serves up a special afternoon tea to mark the inaugural #WorldBeeDay.
Parliament House chefs have been waxing lyrical about the key ingredient for their afternoon tea menu – pure honey from our own hard-working Parliamentary bees. The bees have been foraging within the Parliamentary gardens and surrounding areas to create an award-winning honey that’s guaranteed to be a real zinger.
Declared by the United Nations General Assembly in December 2017 to raise awareness of the importance of bees, World Bee Day will be celebrated around the world – but at no place sweeter than our own café in the People’s House.
Swarms of visitors are tipped to attend so, to avoid being stung, book early. Email us or call 02 6277 5206.
To keep the World Bee Day celebrations buzzing in Canberra, the Embassies of Slovenia, Switzerland and Sweden, together with ACT Beekeepers Association, and Non-Government Organisations, will also be a hive of activity staging various events. Click here for an interactive map of the day's events.
Keep Sunday 20 May free and bee involved in the first World Bee Day. How sweet it will be.
