Illawarra Beekeepers Association Inc.

Your Beekeeping Club in Sutherland

Welcome to the Illawarra Beekeepers association incorporated. Under the patronage of the Sutherland Shire Council and a proud member of the Amateur Beekeepers Association of NSW Australia, our aim is to support and provide education and fun meetings for people interested in beekeeping and bee related activities.

Generally, we meet monthly (except public holidays) on the second Thursday evening at 7.00pm and on the last Sunday morning at 10.00am at our bee garden and museum facility in Sutherland. You would be most welcome to attend a club meeting or do some work with some beehives on a field day.
