The Hobart Men’s Probus Club has a very active outings program and 32 members and partners recently toured the extensive Midlands properties owned by the McShane family. 

Gerard McShane accompanied the group as guide and commentator. The Midlands Irrigation Scheme has enabled an extension of farming  from traditional grazing to cropping and year-round fodder production. 

A bus took participants through farms between Kempton and Oatlands with the famous names of Stockman, Kelvin Grove, Hutton Park, and Huntsworth culminating in a barbecue lunch at Lovely Banks.
