The Royal Horticultural Society of New South Wales Inc. was first established in 1862.  Being one of the oldest horticultural societies in Australia, the RHS of NSW Inc. has been involved in maintaining horticultural and floral art standards for most horticultural, agricultural and floral art shows in NSW.  The Society’s Specimen Standards book and Floral Art Show Guide are used as the basis for most exhibiting in NSW.


Since its establishment in 1862 the Patron of the Society has been the current Governor of New South Wales.  The Society is a not-for-profit association and produces an annual floral/horticultural display at the annual Sydney Royal Easter Show.  The Society is also actively involved with other events during the year.



Monthly meetings comprise both a horticultural guest speaker and a floral art demonstration; horticultural specimen show bench; floral art show bench and a critique of all exhibits by accredited RHS judges during the meeting.


The Society meets on the fourth Wednesday of most months at Beecroft Bowling Club, 128 Copeland Road, Beecroft, commencing at 9:45am with all competitive exhibits to be on the show bench by 9:30am.


Please see the diary dates and contact page for more details. 


All members of  affiliated  Societies and the public are most welcome to join us.  The admission fee of $5.00 includes morning tea.
