Hive Haven Hero

Giving Australian Native Bees A Sustainable Home


See Hive Haven hives in action


Hive Haven is a leading native bee hive innovator in Australia.

Did you know native bees die and suffer heat stress in our summer heat waves?

Devastated by such a loss, Ann decided she would find a solution. 

Ann and the Hive Haven team designed and built these precious creatures a first-class home. Bee’s love it – the insulation and air flow system provides the effect of natures or natural conditioning! Ann calls it The Native Hive but it’s often referred to by industry as the V9 Native Bee Hive.


Hive Haven Native Hive’s are:

  • Cleverly designed to maintain a stable temperature 

  • Durable, sturdy and virtually no maintenance is required

  • Free of rotting, cracking, swelling, mildew and termites

  • Easy access to honey via the internal cartridge

  • Propagate a new colony with minimal disruption to bees.

Innovation at hive haven

The Hive Haven Native Hive is revolutionary to the bee keeping industry.

The brilliant design has a variety of features, providing a groundbreaking contribution to Australian beekeeping. The innovative hollow insulation cavity can be filled with either a liquid or a soft solid to maintain a temperature controlled environment. This feature alleviates hive overheating, and heat stress on the bees. In addition, The Native Bee Hive is largely maintenance free!

A happy home means a productive life for the our heroic little Aussie Battler


A Lover

Today the native bee is rapidly being recognised as an extremely effective pollinator of Australian food crops – in essence, this bee could be the key to our survival. As with honey bees, these cute little critters do have a queen, they have workers and, YES they produce honey!

Sadly we are experiencing a sharp decline in the pollination of food crops due to the development of land and as a consequence, a loss of their natural habitat. In addition, with the climate changing comes the increase in temperature. This is deadly for bee’s. 

At Hive Haven our goal is to raise awareness and help our Australian native stingless bee species. 


Made In Australia

We are really proud of working with local manufacturers to produce The Native Hive and its unique Security Stand.
