Looking for recommendations for buying first nuc (near Melbourne, Vic)

Hi All
Can someone recommend a good place to buy a nuc for my first hive? I’m just outside of the Melbourne metropolitan area, in Nillimbuk Shire.

Ben’s Bees might be worth a shot

Hi. Yes I saw his website, I just think $350 for a 5 frame nuc is very expensive, the most expensive I’ve seen anywhere. I’m looking for somewhere cheaper.

HI Mike, Do a search for nuc on gumtree. I have seen plenty of ads there in the past.

Heres one seller in Fawkner, VIC:

Thanks for the idea, il have to check out gumtree, $250 is reasonable I think.
