Each of us is different so we do not have a standard beginners kit. Below are a few of the suggestions we offer. You might not need all our suggestions. If each of us liked the same thing, it would be a simple choice.
We do offer a range and let you choose what you would like or how much you wish to spend.
At the bottom of the page we have put together a few kits, or you can make up your own.

Bees

One of the most popular questions we are often asked "where can I get some bees?" I have no short answer for this one as it is often a case of sourcing your future bees from the local area

We do sell Swarm Lures that are used to attract swarms to a suitable trap that you have placed. You can read more about these on Page 8 of our catalogue

Bee Clubs
Many areas throughout the different States are serviced by some very informative beekeeping clubs. These are a good source of information and often can help you aquire some bees plus a lot of knowledge.

Check out our club and association pages

State Goverment Departements
