Founded in August 1965 by Dorothy and Vita Koreshoff, the Bonsai Society of Australia Inc. is one of the first Australian bonsai societies.
As a non-profit association, its purpose is to promote knowledge of, and interest in bonsai and to serve as a national focal point for bonsai fanciers.
A Bonsai newsletter is published monthly and a variety of educational and support services are provided to the bonsai community. Committee members of the Bonsai Society of Australia Inc. are unpaid volunteers who are dedicated to spreading the word about this wonderful, satisfying and challenging hobby.
Meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month.
• Time: 7.15pm for 7.30pm start
• Location: main hall at West Pennant Hills Community Centre, 42 Hill Rd, West Pennant Hills.
The meetings are friendly and informal as well as providing much information. The lecturers and demonstrators are qualified, and their work is of seminar quality. There is a bench display of members’ trees each month and members are encouraged to bring a tree and give a short discussion on it after the demonstration if they wish.
Free workshops are held for members on the third Tuesday of the month (except December) at 7.30pm start in the Activity Room at the same location as meetings.
