Yapunyah Trees, growing on the flood plains in the "Channel Country" of Western Queensland. The area is just south of Quilpie and forms part of the Bulloo River. This area only averages about 275mm (11 ins) of rain per year. The Yapunyah tree flowers from early April till late October and is a major producer of honey through our winter months, with an average production on 150kg per hive. While nectar production in plentiful, pollen is in short supply and often of poor quality. Unless pollen substitutes are fed to the bees the hives can come out of the area in poor condition.
