  • BeeVee Honey

    BeeVee Honey is made up of beekeeping enthusiasts; a husband and wife team who took up beekeeping as a hobby with a few hives to look after on their parent’s farm but then quickly grew to more hives on many farms in Carnarvon. We have beehives situated in different locations throughout the plantation area of Carnarvon; so, the bees have many choices of fruit and vegetables to gather nectar and pollen from. The bees have the option to travel to 180 plantations that grow a plethora of fruit and vegetables; along the Gascoyne Riverbed there are many varieties of gum trees, and the neighbouring bushland has native plants and bushes, so our bees are very busy collecting food and pollinating a diverse range of plants throughout Carnarvon. Because of the diverse range of plants and flowers that the bees visit, BeeVee Honey collects and extracts this honey to provide you with beautiful tasting honey and honeycomb (and bees wax). Please come and visit our on-farm shop at 497 Robinson St, Kingsford. BeeVee Honey can also assist with catching and removing swarms of bees. A swarm may be a pest to you but it is a valuable asset to us, the community and the environment. The bees that we remove are taken care of and placed in a new home and a new location so that they can continue to pollinate our plants and provide golden sweet honey for all of us to enjoy. If you have a swarm that you would like removed, please contact Rob on 0417 515 177. Please note that Rob can assist only after standard work hours, during lunchtime periods and on weekends.

  • Carnarvon Space and Technology Museum

    The Carnarvon Space and Technology Museum celebrates the little known history of the role Carnarvon played in the manned space program and in the Australian satellite communications industry. In 1966, the Casshorn antenna locally known as the ‘Sugar Scoop’ was used for the first television broadcast from Australia to the BBC in London. The program was called “Down Under Comes Up Live”. On 21 July 1969, the day of the Apollo 11 moon landing, the Casshorn antenna which stands beside the OTC Dish relayed Neil Armstrong’s first steps on the Moon from NASA’s Honey Suckle Creek Tracking Station to Perth’s TV audience via Moree earth station – the first live telecast into Western Australia. Later in 1969, the larger 29.6 metre wide steerable antenna was built to facilitate better communication between the NASA Tracking Station and the USA. The Carnarvon Tracking Station (no longer standing) was located 10 kilometres south from Carnarvon. The station was built to support NASA’s Gemini, Apollo and Skylab programs. It was commissioned in 1964 and operated for 11 years. It was the last station to communicate with the space capsules leaving the earth’s orbit, and the last to make contact before splashdown in the Pacific Ocean. At the height of the operation it had a staff of 220 people. The OTC Satellite Earth Station is now the site for the Carnarvon Space and Technology Museum, located approximately 6km from the town centre. The OTC Satellite Earth Station was opened in1966, initially the 12.8 metre wide Casshorn antenna known as the ‘sugar scoop’ was part of the global satellite communications system. The museum focuses on two parts, the Carnarvon Tracking Station and the OTC Satellite Earth Station, for which each station played separate roles in the early space industry. Phase One of the museum was officially opened by retired NASA astronaut Buzz Aldrin in 2012, Phase Two by Australian born astronaut Andy Thomas in 2014 and Phase Three in 2016 by “The Last Man on the Moon” astronaut Gene Cernan. In 2018 a new display was built to honour the first American in space Alan Shepard. The full size 25 meter tall mock up of a Mercury Redstone sits proudly sits at the entry of the museum. The museum is operated by a small dedicated group of volunteers and is mainly self funded.
