  • Coastal Budgerigar Society (Est. 1974) based in Devonport.

Welcome to the BCT Web Site for 2021, which has been the source of a variety of information of the budgerigar fancy for many years.

I encourage you to visit ‘BCT Library’ section which contains articles, pictures, survey results, and other information relating to budgerigars.

The 3 clubs within Tasmania welcome all enquiries from members of the public wishing to join a club in their area, or maybe just seeking information. Email addresses for the clubs provided above.

The year 2020 has been a difficult year for all, lets hope that 2021 brings about some normality regarding club activities and that the National Show gets the go ahead in May. The changes we made to the Future Champion Show seemed to go quite well, it did however highlight that we needed to make some minor changes to the scoring of points, these are explained on page 8 (Notice Board of Show Schedule Booklet). The Future Champion Exhibitor 2021, both Novice and Intermediate will be awarded a ‘Budgerigar’ purchased and donated by BCT along with an acknowledgement trophy. The Exhibitor’s names(s) will be engraved on the BCT Future Champions Perpetual Trophy.

The BCT and associated Societies have many shows, sales, auctions etc., around the state throughout the year, so please visit the Show Schedule Book 2021 ‘State Show Calendar’ page 6 for dates in 2021. This page also has downloads for Entry Forms ring order and show entry forms.

‘Enjoy’ the Budgerigar Council of Tasmania’s Website.
