When you want to experience the buzz of live beehives come and visit the Collingwood Children's Farm Apiary.

The apiary is jointly managed by the VAA Melbourne Section and Collingwood Children’s Farm.

Its aim is to educate the public about bees and beekeeping,
as well as providing beekeeping advice and practice to current and prospective beekeepers.

It is open on the second and fourth Sunday of each month from 10:30 to 3:30,
except during winter when it is only open on the fourth Sunday.
In December this year (2015), however, it will instead be opening on the first and third Sunday (6th and 20th December).

To reach the apiary, go to the end of St Heliers St, Abbotsford, turn right along the bike path and walk approx. 300 metres
(Melway 2D D10).

The apiary is a great venue for club members to meet and exchange beekeeping ideas and techniques.
At the hives newer members can learn practical beekeeping skills from more experienced beekeepers.
Everyone can interact with the many visitors and help educate them about the importance of bees to food production.

The Collingwood Children's Farm Apiary is represented via the following channels:


On 3rd December 2015 a weight sensor was added to hive #1 (see below).

On 6th December a box of Flow Frames have been added to this hive.
