Welcome to the Illawarra Beekeepers Association

Our aim is to support and provide education and fun meetings for people interested in beekeeping and related activities.
We are a branch of the NSW Amateur Beekeepers Association who have around 1000 members in 15 branches throughout NSW.
Generally we meet on the second Thursday evening of each month at 7.00pm and on the last Sunday of each month 10am at the Beegarden at Sutherland. You would be most welcome to attend a club meeting or do some work with some beehives on a field day.
The club has wonderful facilities including a club room, club store, apiary site and honey extracting room at Sutherland. We provide lectures for school groups and others about bees and beekeeping.
Want to get started in bees and don't know who to turn to, what equipment to buy, where to get bees from or just want to find out if bees are for you, you have come to the right place joining the club will give you access to apiary equipment and the expertise of experienced beekeepers. It will also provide you with low cost third party insurance for beekeeping activities.
