I was told there were no bee keepers in Broken Hill, NSW, Australia. BUT!! whilst walking home this evening from town I spotted a honey bee on the sidewalk. It looked all tuckered out and appeared as tho it couldn't fly -- but it was a honey bee.
It is possible the man at the Chamber of Commerce didn't know what the hell he was talking about and I have wasted three weeks without making contact.
