Welcome to Castlemaine Bee Sanctuary

Castlemaine Bee Sanctuary has been rescuing honeybees in Castlemaine, Central Victoria, Australia since 2013.

These bees are then re-homed in responsibly managed hives, adopted out to hosts within the community and used to help people learn how to become apicentric beekeepers.

Our goal is to improve the environment for pollinating creatures by implementing grass-roots solutions, sharing information and increasing awareness about the benefits our pollinators offer… as well as the problems they currently face.
