Welcome to the home page of the Victorian Apiarists' Association Inc.

The Victorian Apiarists' Association aims to provide services, leadership and vision to its members. This includes securing access and tenure to floral resources, controlling disease and providing protection to a strong industry. We also assist with the advancement of apiculture through diversification, education, training and information and by utilising technology.

The Victorian Apiarists' Association can help all beekeepers regardless of how many hives they own.  Whether you are a hobbyist beekeeper with one hive in the backyard, a semi commercial beekeeper that wishes to take the next step towards becoming fully financially dependent on beekeeping or the full time commercial beekeeper, we can help you.
