Camellias Australia Incorporated was established in 1952 as the Australian Camellia Research Society “to encourage investigation and research into matters concerning the genus Camellia, to collect information and publish the findings, and by appropriate means to make the genus, its species, hybrids and cultivars known and appreciated throughout Australia.”
For information on how to become a member and to find a camellia society affiliated with Camellias Australia near you, visit the Affiliates page.
Camellias Australia meets annually for a National Camellia Congress. The 2018 National Congress will be hosted by the Camellias Victoria Thursday 6th September to Sunday 9th September in conjunction with the Ferny Creek Horticultural Society. The Congress will be held at the Foothills Conference Centre in Mooroolbark and tours will be in the lovely Yarra Valley.
During Congress our Councillors come together to discuss matters concerning Camellias Australia, however we enjoy a banquet dinner where National Awards are presented. On the social side there are enjoyable coach tours of the region in which we are staying and time to get to know and renew friendships with members of other Affiliates.
The National Camellia Show will be held in conjunction with the National Congress.
