Welcome to the
Budgerigar Council of Tasmania
Web Site for 2020

Message from the President

The Budgerigar Council is the ruling body for Tasmania and is made up from three clubs located within the State.  The clubs being:

  • Tasmanian Budgerigar Society (Est. 1933) based in Hobart
    Secretary:  Craig Foster
    - Email:  [email protected]

  • Northern Tasmanian Budgerigar Society (Est. 1935) based in Launceston.
    Secretary:   Shaun Barnard - Email: 
    [email protected]

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

Welcome to the BCT Web Site for 2020, 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 will bring about a major change to the ‘Future Champion Show’ as the show will no longer be incorporated with club shows. (The three year trial has now finished). It will change direction in that points will be awarded for the first 3 birds of each variety for Novice and Intermediate at each of the Club’s Annual Shows and the TBS Winter Presentation Show. 1st – 3 points, 2nd - 2 points and 3rd – 1 point. These points will be accumulated until the completion of TBS Winter Show, where the winning exhibitor will be awarded the title of ‘Future Champion Exhibitor’ for that year. The Future Champion Exhibitor 2020 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 'Schedule Book 2020' page for dates in 2020. This page also has downloads for BCT ring order and show entry forms.

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