About the venue

Bimbimbi House is one of Bermagui’s original homesteads which was run as a guest house for many years. Situated on 5 acres of extensive gardens and natural spotted gum forest it is the perfect place to have 7 of my hives which I moved here after the fires came through our place in Brogo. The colonies have had a chance to pick up and recover with all the varied fodder available from the gardens, I’m very excited to be teaching one of my courses on this property it’s such a beautiful setting overlooking the Bermagui river and the homestead is perfectly suited to accommodate us for the two days.

Accomodation is available on the property for those coming from afar with a self contained studio on offer, there are also beds available in the 5 bedroom 3 bathroom house contact the owners for details call Gary on 0425 727 553. More accommodation is available in Bermagui township which is a 5 minute drive away.
