Welcome to the BCT Web Site for 2023, 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 2022 has again proven to be a difficult year for our hobby worldwide, however, Tassie fared better than most with all shows successfully being staged by their clubs. The National Show went ahead this year with a restricted Show with only Carers and local workers being involved. We hope that 2023 in Tassie and the mainland brings about some normality regarding club activities and that the National Show to be staged in Ballarat Victoria in June. 

The changes we made to the Future Champion Show worked well where we saw the owners of the winning/reserve and opposite sex birds rewarded with extra points in both the classes and final for the Championship judging. The Future Champion Exhibitors, both Novice and Intermediate in 2023 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 2023 ‘State Show Calendar’ page 6 for dates in 2023. This page also has downloads for Entry Forms ring order and show entry forms.

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