Welcome to Central Coast Amateur Beekeepers
Central Coast Amateur Beekeepers is a sub-branch of the Amateur Beekeepers Association of NSW (ABA) based in Central Coast, NSW. The club aims to improve the knowledge and skills of amateur beekeepers. We are a small but enthusiastic group of amateur apiarists who are happy to help new beekeepers.
Our meetings are held on the third Wednesday of the month at The Old Tote Trust Rooms, Gosford Showground, Showground Rd, Gosford. The meeting commences at 7.00. New members are always welcome.
There is a wealth of knowledge available to all and the club has extractors and knives which can also be shared with members. We have a comprehensive library available for borrowing by members. Members are available to collect swarms as well as give presentations.
We try to have a presentation of interest at each meeting.
Publicly, we can be seen at the Gosford Show and Flora Festival each year, where we sell club and members honey as well as all products bee related – wax , polishes, and candles.
During the Gosford Show we hold a competition for honey, wax, wax products and mead. All beekeepers as well as local schools with agricultral sections are invited to compete. There is a small prize money given. The enjoyment is more for the show of apiary diversity and time to meet and greet fellow beekeepers.
