Beekeeping Information

Interested in beekeeping?

Great! The more beekeepers we have, the better we all are.

Not only do bees give us that beautiful, sweet, golden honey, they’re integral in pollinating plants, assisting plant reproduction and a better environment for us all.

There are a very large number of beekeeper associations and organisations around Australia. They’re passionate about their craft, and are always open in welcoming people who want to learn more about it, or wish to get their very own hive.

Here’s a list of some of the beekeeping groups around Australia. Most have smaller regional associations so visit the nearest one for more int. If you are involved in a beekeeping group that isn’t listed here and would like to be listed, please email us at info@rawhoney.com.au
