Bee Swarm Removal
If you have come to this site because you have encountered a swarm of bees, go to our Swarm Collection page and you will find someone who can remove it for you.
Do you want to buy our honey?
Come to the Bee Garden at Terrey Hills for our monthly field days and you can purchase honey there. We also sell honey at several outside sales events during the year and these events, as well as our field days, are listed on the “Coming Events” page of this web site.
Interested in attending a beekeeping course?
Go to the Beekeeping Courses page on this site to see when the next course is to be held. Interest for these courses is high so if you want to be there, register quickly to avoid missing out. To ensure a good result, we use two instructors and the course numbers are limited to fifteen students. Entry is on a first come, first served basis.
What our club offers to the membership
Our night meetings are held bi-monthly at the Senior Citizens Hall at 259 Pacific Highway Lindfield on the second Wednesday of each second month, so meetings are in February, April, June, August and October. There is no night meeting in December. There is a list of dates in the “Coming Events” page of this site.
Monthly Bee Garden Field Days are held the Sunday following the second Wednesday of each month from 11am to 1pm with the exception of December.
The clubhouse situated at Myoora Road Terrey Hills NSW 2804. It is the same entrance as the Par 3 Golf Course. See Coming Events page for map.
Our monthly Bee Garden meetings are friendly, sociable, unstructured courses in various aspects of bee keeping and are free to members and visitors alike. Our bi-monthly night meetings at Lindfield usually include a speaker who may be a club member, but more often is an industry expert to help keep us all up to date with best practice beekeeping.
We want to help you get started in beekeeping and will assist you in securing swarm bees (when available). The Association also offers a free mentoring service and monthly hands on sessions with the hives at the Bee Garden Field Day each month.
The club shop is open for business during the Myoora Road Bee Garden Field Days. Our shop can supply you with all the necessary items to start your beekeeping career at competitive prices.
