After profiling urban beekeepers Vanessa Kwiatkowski and Mat Lumalasi for our current issue, we fell in love with all things bees and honey and decided that the logical next step was to get our very own beehive. To share in our excitement, we would like to invite you to take part in a hands-on workshop on bees and beekeeping, run by Vanessa and Mat themselves.
As well as offering a wealth of information the workshop will give you the chance to handle bees inside a real hive and taste the different honeys from Melbourne’s own Urban Beehives. All attendees will receive a gift bag packed with lots of info, sweet goodies and the wonderful Bee Book by Ann Cliff.
When: Sunday 25 September 1pm – 5pm
Where: 11 Princes St, St Kilda
How much: $150 (includes workshop, gift bag and afternoon tea)
Places will be limited to 20 people so book now to secure your spot.

Hidden Secrets Tours is very excited to be a sponsor of one of the newest Hives on a Little Collins Street balcony!

GETAWAY - Get out of the Big smoke.. and discover ARCHITECTURE

Wow, a special event needs to be celebrated sometimes, whether it is a coming of age, or wonderful achievement.. OR just because... - We love those ones the best ...  so where do you go, what do you do...

THIS time... Melbourne is not our destination.. ( we will miss it though ) but Melton and Bacchus Marsh... WHERE you say... I too agree, so we did a reccy today to one of Melbourne's   Australia's most influential Architect's masterpiece..  The Boyd Baker House.

We are not sure what more to say other than its booked out for weekends until early next year... and we are super excited to know some people who have asked us to share in the place with them!!!

Feedback - we love your emails!

Today we received a lovely email from on of our guests... I couldn't help but post it here.. 
  : :  Of course whilst we enjoy a cup of Chilli Hot Chocolate at Koko Black

Q1. The tour was FAR MORE than what we expected because a) it was well organised and we saw many more arcades and laneways than if we were wondering around by ourselves and b) if was really really interesting to take some time to learn about the history of the beautiful buildings and arcades of Melbourne.

Q2. It is hard to pick one thing that we liked about the tour because we really liked EVERYTHING but, not wishing to sound naf but, what I liked the most was that as we went along and saw all the beautiful shop window displays, architecture etc an sense/feeling developed that I was in Australia's Paris (rather than just another Oz city so's to speak)...Melbourne became something for me.

Q3. I have been to Melbourne many many years ago with my husband...can't remember anything about all that except that I bought some stunning boots and I enjoyed the Dandenong area. I also went in 2009 again with my daughter Lee for my 60th birthday and we did your Vintage Tour and had THE BEST time which is of course, why we came back to you guys again.

Thanks Rae, we too enjoyed your enthusiasm...
