Welcome to the home page of the Melbourne Begonia Society.
The Melbourne Begonia Society began as a study group of the Victorian Begonia Society. The inaugural meeting of the Melbourne Study Group took place in 1995 under the umbrella of the Victorian Begonia Society and was held at the Astronomer’s Cottage, Melbourne Botanical Gardens.
As the Study group grew it moved to larger premises at Tucker Road Primary School in Bentleigh.
In October 1999, members of the Study Group voted to form their own society to be called The Melbourne Begonia Society Inc. The society continued to thrive and now, in 2011, has approximately 100 members.
