Welcome

Canberra Bonsai Society has members with extensive experience in both traditional material and Australian plants as bonsai.

We offer members the opportunity to develop bonsai knowledge and skills through:
  • monthly meetings with presentations, show and tell, and help to work on trees
  • demonstrations and workshops from leading bonsai artists
  • field excursions and trips to interstate nurseries.

Major events for the year include:
  • Our annual show in October
  • Coordinating the Australian Native Plants as Bonsai annual exhibition

CBS members act as volunteer guides and help maintain the bonsai on display at the National Bonsai and Penjing Collection of Australia, located at the National Arboretum Canberra.

We invite you to explore our website and visitors are most welcome at our monthly meetings.
