The Gold Coast Regional Beekeepers Inc. hold their monthly club day meetings at the Vietnam Veterans’ Complex, 18 Leagues Club Drive, NERANG, on the 3rd Saturday each month, starting at 8:30am with inspections of the club Hives.
This is the best way for new beekeepers to become familiar with bees and learn from experienced beekeepers how to handle hives and identify what is happening in the hives.
This is a hands on experience where you can ask any questions you have about hives and gain practical experience handling bees.
Attendees must wear a bee suit, or veil with clothing such as jeans / a thick long sleeved shirt / thick cotton socks and closed in shoes. Due to biosecurity requirements attendees must only use Club provided gloves and hive equipment; however, the club has a limited number of bee veils available for use on meeting days for those who do not have their own.
