The Big Pineapple is in the throws of developing an exciting renewal plan.  This is being done in close consultation with the community with a view to developing a rejuvenated and sustainable Big Pineapple experience that will include a food & tourism hub, nature based tourism, an events space, accommodation and a travel centre.  There will be significant scope for our sector to be involved and to create new business opportunities.

  1. As a small business, http://www.hellohoney.com.au is interested in retailing 100% Australian, 100% Natural BEE products if a store is opened. Please advise who is best to contact with regard to this. We want to give Comvita a little competition, everyone knows about New Zealand’s Manuka honey and now we are finally getting recognition for Australia’s Medicinal Jelly Bush Honey and Propolis Honey. Our honey is only sourced from Native Australian Bush and not sprayed crops. Thanking You Judy Scrase
