Western Australia Apiary Society (WAAS)
The WA Apiarists’ Society currently has over 800 members, the majority being hobbyists who meet to learn, share and promote the craft of beekeeping.
Formed in 1953, the Society has been guided by a committee of volunteers under whom membership numbers have steadily increased. We are the second oldest Beekeeping Association in Western Australia and can proudly say that we have the largest membership not only in WA but in Australia.
Meetings are held monthly (see our ‘Meetings’ page for details). Expert guest speakers and in-the-field practical sessions are a feature.
All are welcome to attend!
