The WA Apiarists’ Society currently has over 500 members, the majority being hobbyists who meet to learn, share and promote the craft of beekeeping.

Formed in 1953, the Society has been guided by a committee of volunteers under whom membership numbers have steadily increased. We are the second oldest Beekeeping Association in Western Australia and can proudly say that we have the largest membership not only in WA, but Australia.

We have a library of beekeeping books and references about WAAS. Meetings are held monthly (see our ‘Meetings’ page for details). Expert guest speakers and in-the-field practical sessions are a feature. Benefits include:

  • discounts at bee equipment suppliers
  • sharing information with like-minded people
  • updates on State, National and International beekeeping research and technology
  • our new FaceBook page
  • Bee Buddy Group
