Welcome to Gippsland Apiarist Association – GAA

The Gippsland Apiarist Association – GAA was formed with 3 founding members in 1963. Namely Bill Cane, Bill Roderick was the Secretary from Bairnsdale and Bob Archibald from Dingley. There were originally only 16 members in the club. Marie Fish designed the GAA logo that forms part of our identity and is seen on both our Website and Newsletter banners.

The club was formed because the Australian Honey Board was going to bring in an export levy and the beekeepers were against it. They formed the association to have a voice for beekeepers, and over the years have fought for the rights of beekeepers ever since.
