BPASS is a new portal created by the NSW Government that brings together Beekeeping Sites on Public Lands in areas managed by NSW National Parks and Wildlife Services, Forestry Corporation NSW and Local Land Services to allow beekeepers to apply for and manage their public apiary site permits and licences all in one place.
It provides a one stop shop for apiarists, improves visibility of available sites and forms a key part of NSW Government's Policy for apiaries on public lands.
To view available potential beekeeping sites on public land view the public BPASS map.
Before visiting any public sites, check for forest closures on the NSW National Parks or Forestry Corporation NSW websites.
To apply for sites you will need to log into the BPASS site (see below).
