About Us

Sydney City Bonsai Club (SCBC), previously called “Eastern Districts Bonsai Society” was established in the 1970s by Dorothy and the late Vita Koreshoff, leading figures in world bonsai. The late, Ms Sue Brennan then worked with our club for many years continually imparting her knowledge and experience of bonsai to our club members and wholly supporting the club as Vice-President and patron.


The purpose of the SCBC is to promote bonsai and to provide an environment to learn the different aspects of this fascinating art. The club meets from February to December, with the meetings including demonstrators, lecturers, workshops and general bonsai activities. The club also produces an informative newsletter 11 times a year.

The Sydney City Bonsai club wishes to express its appreciation to the City of Sydney for a reduced rate on our meeting venue. As a self funded non profit community organisation with minimal funds their contribution helps enable us to continue to assist those wishing to learn more about bonsai and meet other ongoing expenses.
