Integrating beekeeping, crop pollination, hive products and research
Beekeepers, farmers, industry leaders, educators and researchers are invited to share knowledge at the second Australian Native Bee Conference. We will discuss issues required to increase understanding and unlock the potential of our native bees, a valuable but under-utilized natural resource.
Following on from the success of the first, the second conference promises even more. Spread over three days are speakers, trade shows, a field trip and a hive exhibition. Several overseas luminaries, including Cristiano Menezes, a Brazilian expert on management of stingless bees and Laurence Packer from Canada, author of “Keeping the Bees” will deliver keynote presentations. The sessions will present a mix of scientific and practical information ensuring that all attendees will learn valuable new information. In the breaks and evenings spend time building your social and professional networks.
The registration price includes entrance to sessions, printed copy of program, morning and afternoon refreshments and lunch for all three days. Economical on-site accommodation, evening meals and the field trip can be booked as extras.
- Send us an abstract of your proposed talk by 27 Sep.
- Register by 13 Oct for your discounted Early-bee registration.
A separate bee identification workshop will be held the following day, 8th Dec.

The World Science Festival is again coming to Brisbane in March 2020. Street Science is very popular component of the World Science Festival and is visited by over 95,000 people.
In 2019 the Royal Society of Queensland and a number of member organisations of the Queensland Science Network hosted a very popular stand that enthralled children and adults alike.
Planning is well underway for the next Street Science stand, which in 2020 will have extended days and opens Friday and Saturday evenings to 9pm. It will again be a collaboration of a number QSN members and all are welcome to participate.
If you have any questions please direct them via the Royal Society of Queensland contacts or Membership Coordinator.
