About Us

Welcome to HiveIQ! We are a beekeeping company based in Canberra, Australia, owned and operated by Victor and David. Our journey began when Victor, a third-generation beekeeper, left the family business in 1990 and moved to Canberra, where he met his wife. After a 20-year break from beekeeping, Victor returned to his passion and teamed up with his friend David, a commercial builder with a goal of returning to the bush and an interest in bees.

It was Christmas 2009 when David convinced Victor (over a bottle of fine Port) to start a beekeeping operation, and Australian Honeybee (now HiveIQ) was born. Since then, we have been working tirelessly to establish a successful beekeeping business, while having a lot of fun along the way (but please don't tell our wives!).

The beekeeper is carefully holding a frame from the hive and observing the bees on it. The beehive is surrounded by other hives and greenery in the foreground. This image captures the serene beauty of beekeeping in natural surroundings and emphasizes the importance of maintaining a healthy environment for honeybees to thrive.

At HiveIQ, we believe that beekeeping is both an art and a science, and we strive to combine the traditional methods of beekeeping with modern technology and innovative solutions. We are passionate about the health and welfare of our bees, and we take great pride in producing high-quality polystyrene beehives.

Our mission is to promote the importance of bees and beekeeping, and to educate people about the critical role that bees play in our ecosystem. We strive to continue to innovate and improve the bee ecosystem.
