Welcome to our website
Macarthur Beekeepers Association Inc. has been serving the Macarthur district, looking after bee hives and collecting swarms for many years.
Our members are always ready with help and advice and our aim is to generate an interest in bees and beekeeping.
The Macarthur Beekeepers' Association, a club affiliated with 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), however due to COVID-19 our meetings are now being conducted online.
Our field days have moved to the second Saturday of the month and a pre-registration system is in place as we have limited spots. To get notified of field day pre-registration and club meetings, subscribe to our mailing list here. Please do not attend the field day if you have not registered.
