The Eastern District Budgerigar Society comprises of a committee and various members from the Eastern suburbs of Melbourne. The club holds a monthly general meeting, which is open for anyone to attend. Anyone interested in becoming a member is welcome to attend one of our meetings - all the members are extremely friendly and approachable. For more information, contact us via email, or simply come along! All members are encouraged to bring a plate of supper to share. During each monthly meeting we conduct a club show where members are encouraged to bring their birds to be judged in an informal environment. This is a good learning curve for beginners as it offers the opportunity for open discussion with many experienced budgie fanciers.

We try to hold a short & informal meeting, during which we share advice & ideas. We also hold an tri-interclub competition with the "United Budgerigar Society and Dandenong Budgerigar Society", this provides invaluable education for our members. Winners of our competition are rewarded on the night with a small prize & are awarded points, these points are then accumulated. At the end of our club's year (April) a prize is awarded to the exhibitors who scored the most points for the year in their section.
