Silk and Honey


And the bus trip continued on to Chudleigh....
We visited the honey shop,


I couldn't get a good shot of the walls and walls of different jars of honey because the OAPs were all over them like...well like bees on a honeypot!


Honeypots!


They weren't thickly clustered around these varieties though.
These are my favourites. Do you remember the NRG bars a couple of posts ago? Well I used the chilli honey from here in them.


They have great educational resources and this Perspex sided hive so you can see it all at work.


Just a block up the street is the silk shop. They stock all things silk including some silk worms doing their thing. 


Again, another great learning opportunity for children.


Cocoons of silk.
we used to have silk worms as children in QLD and would walk down to the lane near Hendra train station and pick mulberry leaves to feed them.


The silk shop is also a fudge shop and they experiment with lots of flavour combinations like chilli and chai latte.
Chudleigh is such a cute little village and they have roses lining the main street as a feature.
So put this one on your stop list too when you visit this part of Tasmania.
Chudleigh is only a stone's throw from Wychwood Gardens, and the Mole Creek Caves and the Mole Creek Wildlife Park where they also specialise in Tassie Devils.

  1. Thankyou so much Tanya! We have had the honey shop and Mole creek on our day trip list for a while, with the silk shop as well you have encouraged me to get there sooner rather than later - The Munchkin would love it! :)

  2. What a fascinating place and your photos are marvellous! Love those honeypots too! Oh yes...childhood memories of silkworms...wonderful! I found a local petshop selling silkworms about 10 years ago so naturally got some for my classroom. We had fun!

  4. I had no idea that honey could be flavored. I'd love to spend some time browsing and tasting in that shop.

    Oh my, the fudge looks equally interesting and tasty.
