Welcome to the

Web Site for 2017

  • Coastal Budgerigar Society (Est. 1974) based in Devonport.
    Secretary:  Catherine Charlesworth - Email:  [email protected]

Welcome to the BCT Web Site for 2017, 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.

Future Champions Shows have now been changed to a format that will see this show incorporated into the three clubs summer shows, on a rotating basis 2017 NTBS, 2018 TBS, 2019 Coastal. After the three years a survey of exhibitors will be undertaken by the BCT on the success of this trial.

This change has been brought about by Novice and Intermediate exhibitors requesting the BCT do something to reduce the burden of having four shows in a five week period, it also means the show will once again be staged in all three State Zones. We also believe that it should lead to greater numbers of birds in these two divisions (Novice & Intermediate) which should result in more qualifying shows, and greater movement of exhibitors moving up in show status. The BCT has many shows, sales, auctions etc., around the state throughout the year, so please visit the 'Schedule Book 2017' page for dates in 2017. This page also has downloads for BCT ring order and show entry forms.

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