ASA 2019 Conference

Brochure 1 cmnbrush

The Avicultural Society of Australia (ASA) in conjunction with our Bendigo Branch takes great pleasure in holding the next Avicultural Conference in Bendigo, Victoria. The Conference will highlight the continuous improvement in aviculture and educate aviculturists in all aspects of the hobby.  It will enable those participating an opportunity to create new friendships and relate personally with other like minded enthusiasts.

The three day Conference will include lectures from International and Australian experts along with respected private breeders covering a broad range of topics. As well as these lectures, the Society has arranged aviary tours and displays as part of the event.

Bendigo is a vibrant contemporary regional centre located in the centre of Victoria, boasting beautiful streets and parks. Its historical buildings and architecture date back to one of the world’s greatest gold rushes. It offers an abundance of opportunity to visitors looking to experience what is available in Bendigo and the surrounding areas.

The ASA is extremely proud to avail aviculturists the opportunity to be part of this wonderful event and we extend a warm welcome to all in the hope they take advantage of what the Conference has to offer.

Lou Dall’Est
President of the A.S.A.
