Ipswich & West Moreton Beekeepers Association, is 24 years old this year and has over 150 members, we have grown to become one of Australia's most active beekeeping clubs. We have members ranging from novices to experienced beekeepers who have been working with bees for decades. We all share a passion for the wonderful and remarkable world of the honey bee.

Ipswich & West Moreton Beekeepers Association meets on the first Tuesday of the month (except January) at 7.30pm until around 10.00pm. New members and visitors are welcome.

Meetings are held at The Humanities Centre, Corner of South and Nicholas Streets,Ipswich.

The Elephants and Bees Project is an innovative study using an in-depth understanding of elephant behaviour to reduce damage from crop-raiding elephants using their instinctive avoidance of African honey bees. The project explores the use of novel Beehive Fences as a natural elephant deterrent to elephants as well as a social and economic boost to poverty-stricken rural communities through pollination services and the sustainable harvesting of “Elephant-Friendly Honey”.
