Flowering trees in natural forested areas is an essential resource for honey production and keeping honey bees strong for pollination services.
Much of this and many beehives have been lost in the recent drought, bush fires and floods
The Queensland Beekeepers’ Association Inc proudly supports
HiveAid – Beekeeper Drought and Bushfire Relief
Australia’s professional beekeepers are our overlooked farmers when it comes to considering the effects of natural disasters.
The Queensland Beekeepers’ Association Inc (QBA) is the Peak Industry body for Queensland’s beekeeping Industry representing
commercial and amateur beekeepers and is committed to ensuring the future of beekeeping in Queensland.
QBA provides a united voice for the welfare of the industry in Queensland while watching over and protecting the interests of its members to ensure an adequate return to the apiarist for their labour and capital in the industry.
The Association is run by an annually elected Management Committee, with each elected person being a QBA member and serving as a volunteer. This Committee represents the members of the Association and liaises with the general community, government and Council bodies, media, private sectors and all other stakeholders.
The Queensland Beekeepers’ Association was founded in 1886 and continues today in supporting the State’s beekeepers, assisting in the welfare of the industry and ensuring its future.
Annual Conferences, regular Newsletters and updated information provides a forum for its members.
