  • Government & Tourism Assistance
  • There is no way we could have achieved so much without the support of:
  • The Australian Government through T-QUAL grants.
  • We are also incredibly grateful for the support of the NSW Government through Destination NSW's 2011/2012 Regional Tourism Product Development Program. The aim of this program was to improve tourism experiences in regional NSW. North Coast Tourism have been of invaluable assistance and encouragement also!

Thank you for helping us bring Australia’s native bees and useful plants a little more of the attention they deserve!
