Australia is such a large continent with hot and balmy tropical rainforests in the north, snow-capped mountains in the south and hot and arid deserts in the centre. Native bees can be found in most of Australia's diverse habitats with swarms teeming through the carpets of flowers in the heathlands or buzzing happily around the blossoms at the tops of gum trees. Some species of native bees even burrow deep into the desert sands, while others nest inside bedraggled trees close to remote water holes. With more than 1700 'true blue' Australian native bees and eleven species of small black stingless bees, do you know which ones can be found in your area?

Join native bee specialist, Dean Bryant at The Ginger Factory, as he shares his wealth of knowledge in the observation and rescue of native stingless bees. Dean Bryant has many years of experience and loves nothing more than to share his expertise on native bee hive structure and lifecycles and will also demonstrate how to safely relocate native bees, species Austroplebeia Australia AA, from an old log to a handcrafted box.
Make sure to book your spot early as there are so many in the local community who care about our native bees and love to glean as much information as they can, which means that these very popular workshops tend to sell out really fast.
