Publicly, we can be seen at the following events:

  • Narara Ecoburbia Sustainability Festival in April each year   
  • Gosford Agricultural Show in early May each year
  • Wyong Spring time Orchid show in September each year
  • Woytopia Sustainability Festival- Woy Woy- October- every two years

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 agricultural 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.

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. We have field days at the club hives which are located at the Ag House of Gosford High School, on Racecourse Road.
