We are a small, friendly and enthusiastic group with a keen interest to learn about and cultivate Australlasian orchids. Many of our members have been growing orchids for many years, and a number are qualified orchid judges, providing a wealth of experience and knowledge for new growers. To get the most out of membership, attendance at monthly meetings is strongly advised. Our meetings are informal, fast paced,  plant focussed, have lots of opportunity for member participation, and provide a wide range of topics on all Australasian orchid groups. Over a two year period, we cover all of the Australian and other Australasian orchids and , and how to acquire and cultivate them.

Members who attend meetings are regularly provided with free seedlings from current breeding programmes of species and hybrids, which more than covers the cost of membership. Experienced growers can also provide divisions of good quality show-bench plants to interested members, at a reasonable cost.


Membership provides a monthly e-newsletter with information on all aspects of Australasian orchids. Members have free entrance to our yearly Spring Show.

Our monthly meeting provides an opportunity for benched flowering Australasian orchids to be judged by our recently certificated ANOS judging panel. There are opportunities to train as an ANOS judge through an ongoing judges training program.

Annual membership cost is $22 for individual membership, family membership is $24.
