The Macarthur Beekeepers Association Inc. has been serving the Macarthur district, looking after bee hives and collecting swarms in spring and summer for many years.
If you need to have bees removed from your property, refer to our swarm list or contact your local council.
Our members are very hands-on and always ready with help and advice.
Our club is represented at over twelve commuity shows per year, this includes the popular Camden and Campbelltown shows. We also attend community events, school fetes and just about anywhere people gather to sell produce and have fun. We have exhibits of bees in hives and we also give demonstrations to the general public. Our aim is to generate an interest in bees and in many cases we recruit new members this way.
Hopefully, this website will help to broaden our membership and more people will learn to enjoy bees and natural honey like we do.
The Macarthur Branch, of the Amateur Beekeepers Association of NSW, meets at the Macarthur Centre for Sustainable Living located at 1 Mt Annan Dr, Mt Annan on the third Wednesday of each month at 7:30 pm (except November) with a Field Day usually held at the same location, the 1st Sunday of the month -weather permitting.

Next Field Day: is to be held at 10:00am on Sunday 1st July 2018 at the apiary (weather permitting - contact apiary officer Torsten on 0425357643 after 5pm only please). Please note that visitors to our apiary are required to wear long sleeved tops, trousers and closed-in shoes. Please note that during the cooler months we will not open hives. Instead we will have Q&A sessions, working bees or education events.
On Sunday July 1, we will workshop how to assemble frames and how to wire frames.
We will also assemble bee boxes for those who missed out on the last field day.
