Welcome to The Beekeepers Club - a place in Melbourne for all Hobby Beekeepers & Wanna Bees


Bees are vital for the survival of mankind on planet earth. We should therefore be all interested to know a little bit about these fascinating creatures.
If we and future generations of us want to survive we have to ensure that bees are remaining part of our ecosystem.


With our web site we want to promote beekeeping as a hobby by sharing information and knowledge with the wider community.


If you want to learn more about the amazing and rewarding hobby of beekeeping then come along to our monthly club meetings and talk to beekeepers.
When you decide to join us we will give you the opportunity to learn the skills of beekeeping from men and women who once were beginners too.

Our Meeting Venue  
Our monthly meetings are at "Senior Citizen Club", 895-901 Doncaster Rd, Doncaster East 3109

Melway 47-K1 (opposite Dan Murphy)

Club Meetings & Beekeeper Events
Our club meetings are on the third Thursday of every month at 7:30pm.
