Walaja Indigenous Raw Bush Honey – TA+ Melaleuca

A proudly indigenous, family run business located in Broome, Western Australia.

The hives are cared for by the Appleby family who have proud Yawuru heritage. They ensure the honey is 100% organic, natural, raw, unprocessed, unheated and contains no additives.

The Kimberley

Walaja Bush Honey is collected in the beautiful and pristine Kimberley region of Western Australia. It is blessed with fertile land that boasts several native trees that flower at different times of the year in the warm tropical climate.

The traditional custodians of the land where walaja honey comes from are the Yawuru people who have occupied and managed the lands and seas in and around Broome since the Bugarrigarra (the time before time). Walaja is the Yawuru word for honey.

Walaja’s hives are primarily located on Roebuck Plains Station which occupies an area 750,000 acres. The station is a pastoral lease that is surrounds the historic pearling towns of Broome in the Kimberley region of Western Australia. It located on a unique combination of rich marine floodplain with wetlands situated adjacent to Roebuck Bay and sandy pindan country. It is owned and managed by the Yawuru Aboriginal Group.

This pristine and fertile parcel of land boasts several native trees that are endemic only to this area. These trees flower at different times of the year in the warm tropical climate and provide food to the bees. The area is free from industry and chemicals, with the beehives living in perfect harmony with free range cattle and the sweet-faced wallabies that seek shade and water from the tropical climate.

Melaleuca Alsophila

The main sources of nectar for this honey is the Melaleuca alsophila, commonly known as the saltwater paperbark. This plant in the myrtle family and is endemic to the north of Western Australia. It is located on the sandy and saline floodplains and coastal flats that are seasonally inundated during the wet season (man-gala). The white cream flowers appears from April to September with the peak nectar flow being in dry season (wirralburu).

Indigenous people in the Kimberley region know the plant to be a favourite resting place for pigeons and they used its trunk to build shelters. The bark can be used as a mosquito repellant and an infusion of its leaves is used to relieve the symptoms of a cold. Native, stingless bees often make their hives in the trunk and branches.

Bush Medicine

Traditional owners have been using bush honey in food and medicine for generations. This honey has been scientifically analysed and shown to have a total activity of up to TA25+. This is considered a “very high” level. In its raw state the honey is anti-bacterial and anti-microbial resulting in medicinal and pharmaceutical benefits.  Great for general wellbeing and digestive health.

To maintain the properties of these honeys we recommend not heating above 35 degrees celsius.
