The Ligurian bee came from northern Italy, from the province of Liguria. It was brought to Kangaroo Island because it was recognised as a quiet, gentle, industrious bee, and the climate is very similar to what - on Kangaroo Island, to that of northern Italy.

Kangaroo Island was declared a bee sanctuary in 1885. No other bees have since been imported to the Island.
