The club’s meetings are held at 7.45 PM on the last Monday of every month
(except December) at:

Collins Street Centre

The meetings are informative evenings which include Bonsai news, demonstrations, lectures, videos and constructive critiques as well as friendly advice and a display of members tree’s.

New visitors are more then welcome to attend, so please come along and have a look for yourself.

In addition to the monthly meetings, we also hold social events such as ‘nursery crawls’ (for stock selection), rock hunts, tree digs, and an annual auction.

Library

The Society owns a comprehensive library containing an excellent range of DVD’s, Books and Magazines about Bonsai from both Australian and International authors. Members are entitled to borrow four items per month.

Workshops

General workshops are held on a monthly basis (members only), usually on the Sunday following the club meeting, as well as during the year at certain meetings. These give members the opportunity to bring along a tree or two to work on and to receive advice from the more experienced members.

Sales, Stalls & Auctions

Members are welcome to set up a stall to sell their unwanted Bonsai materials i.e. finished & pre trained trees, pots, tools, wire etc. A fee of 10% applies to these sales and goes towards the club funds.

The Society also has an annual Auction of new and used Bonsai materials This is usually made up of unwanted items donated by members which are auctioned to raise funds for bringing international demonstrators to Perth. These auctions are usually a lot of fun and is a good way of obtaining some good Bonsai items at a bargain price.
