Western Australian Apiarists Society


Welcome to the information page for the Greater Bunbury Region Chapter of WA Apiarist’s Society, previously known as the Capel Chapter.

We are a social group who meet in the Bunbury area of WA.  Our goal is to get to know other local beekeepers, to share knowledge and experience with each other.  We are fortunate enough to have some very experienced beekeepers among our number, which is of great benefit to those just starting out. Come along and share the joys and disappointments of beekeeping, along with finding out about beekeeping courses which will be available in our Southwest soon.

Our meetings are on the third Wednesday of the month, commencing at 6.30pm in Building 6, Edith Cowan South West Campus. Enter off Robertson Drive. There is a small entry fee to cover costs, with light refreshments provided on the night.
