Beehive need to be registered.

Beekeeping registers

Thinking about getting bees? There's one thing you must do, writes Kelly Lees, register your beehives.

It is very important to register your beehive with the relevant state or territory authority. This is critical in situations such as the current Varroa incursion, as it enables the tracking and monitoring of all hives for the health and benefit of the whole industry. You will also be kept updated about pests and diseases and the latest information and development in the beekeeping industry.

To register go to: 

NSW DPI:      

VIC Agriculture Victoria:     

QLD Business Queensland:

TAS Department of Natural Resources and Environment:

SA Department of Primary Industries and Regions:

WA DPI and Regional Development:
