Hey Robbo,
Bees in the Northern Rivers are swarming at the moment - you might get lucky.

Look up Browns Bees, they sell packages and queens. I've never dealt with them. I read the owner had a lawsuit for illegally importing queens.
Quote
3, 4 and 5lb packages with one queen are available from October  till March.

How many packages are you hoping to get? I'm interested in the price if you get a quote.  Smiley
