Victorian Apiarists' Association

About the Victorian Apiarists' Association Melbourne Section 

The main aim of the VAA Melbourne Section beekeeping group is to provide support and advice to beekeepers, particularly those in urban environments.

Members of the VAA are automatically members of the VAA Melbourne Section. However, all beekeepers and prospective beekeepers, particularly those in Melbourne and surrounding areas, are welcome to participate in our activities.

What we do
  • Conduct evening beekeeper meetings on the last Thursday of each month (except in December). The venue and meeting details are described on our Events page.  
  • Deliver beekeeping courses and workshops throughout the year.
  • Manage the apiary at the Collingwood Children’s Farm in order to provide beekeeping advice and practical training to current and prospective beekeepers, and to educate the public about bees and beekeeping.
  • Liaise with and support the Victorian Apiarists’ Association.
