Bonsai Clubs – Australia
Bonsai clubs and societies in Australia are an excellent way to gain an insight into the world of bonsai. Bonsai techniques, tools and advice on growing bonsai from expert growers is shared at club meetings.
With bonsai clubs and societies in all states it is well worth while joining to gain access to a wealth of experience from experienced bonsai growers. Bonsai clubs also provide an avenue for displaying your bonsai work, meeting other bonsai enthusiasts and gaining access to the latest developments in the art of bonsai.
Many Bonsai clubs run annual shows that are open to the public.
Waverley Bonsai Group and the Victorian Native Bonsai Society are two. Bonsai shows are often held in spring. For a list of Bonsai shows see our Australian Gardening Show Calendar
