The Western Australian Apiarists’ Society (WAAS) is an incorporated not for profit association whose members are beekeepers and people simply interested in bees. Some members are professional or ex-professional beekeepers, but most have a small number of hives and could be best described as hobbyists.
WAAS was founded in 1953; it is the second oldest beekeeping association in Australia, and with over 1000 members is one of, if not the largest in Australia. WAAS is managed by an elected committee of members and relies on volunteers for most of its activities.
WAAS has Chapters operating in regional Western Australia, covering the Greater Bunbury region, and the Margaret River region. Link to our Chapters page for more information and contact details for these groups.
We also have Bee Buddy groups all over the Perth metropolitan area and in a growing number of country towns. Check out upcoming meetings and other events on the calendar below.
