Bonsai Society of WA

1 Collins Street, South Perth 6151, Western Australia, City of South Perth, Australia


Group Details

First meeting of the Bonsai Society of WA was in a garden shop at the Floreat Forum in July 1976, and in Spring of that year the newly formed club was invited to stage a display of Bonsai at the Perth Royal Show. The members were delighted and worked hard to set up a show that they called “Tranquillity – A display of the best Bonsai in WA”

In those early days of Bonsai in WA the only pots that were available were from Boans Ltd and these were very expensive, so members bought a diamond tip drill and drilled out drainage holes in clay pots used in kitchens. Some members also tried the technique of planting seeds in scooped out oranges, the theory being that the citric acid in the skin of the orange dwarfed the plant, this of course was a fallacy and proven to be untrue.


Club Meetings

The club’s meetings are held at 7.45 PM on the last Monday of every month (except December) at:

Collins Street Centre
Corner Collins St & Shaftesbury St, South Perth

The meetings are informative evenings which include Bonsai news, demonstrations, lectures, videos and constructive critiques as well as friendly advice and a display of members tree’s.

New visitors are more then welcome to attend, so please come along and have a look for yourself.

In addition to the monthly meetings, we also hold social events such as ‘nursery crawls’ (for stock selection), rock hunts, tree digs, and an annual auction.
