High Tea at the Carrington Hotel

Spring Blossoms at Leura and High tea at the Carrington Hotel Tuesday 4th October

The Blue Mountains are truly spectacular year round and it is no wonder that visitors from all over the world flock to it. We travel with OnCourseTours to the refurbished Carrington Hotel in the heart of Katoomba, a Landmark in the Blue Mountains since 1880. The hotel boasts a delightful ambience which we will have time to appreciate as we enjoy our High Tea in the Grand Dining Room. We will enjoy morning tea en route to the mountains.

Prior to our High Tea we will stop at Leura for some shopping and time to enjoy the blossoms that are out in the main street at this time of year. Following our visit to The Carrington, we will enjoy a short drive along the cliff tops to Echo Point, where you can soak up spectacular views of the Jamison Valley and the unique rock formation of the Three Sisters. From there we will head to Jamison Lookout at Wentworth Falls which provides beautiful views south over Jamison Valley towards Mount Solitary and beyond.

Cost is $90.00 per person and includes morning tea, our High Tea at The Carrington (finger sandwiches, selection of mini quiches, spinach and fetta triangles, cakes, scones jam and cream, tea and filtered coffee) and coach touring.

Probus Club of Bobbin Head

The next General Meeting will be held at Turramurra Bowling Club on Momnday 8th August 2022 at 10:00 am. Visitors are most welcome. Our speaker will be Dr. Richard Harris on Medical  and other Adventures.

At our May meeting, our speaker was Rosemary McCulloch who entertained us on Behind the Scenes at the BBC.

In her entertaining and informative presentation, Rosemary reminisces about her experiences during the 17 years that she spent working behind the scenes at the BBC and the many roles that she filled during that time - including that of news reader, interviewer, sound engineer and sound effects person, to name a few.

Rosemary describes the stress of working on live broadcasts when things don’t go quite as planned and shares personal glimpses of the famous people - such as David Attenborough – whom she met during the course of her career.

Rosemary McCulloch Background

Prior to coming to Australia 15 years ago, Rosemary McCulloch was a lecturer and tutor in public speaking and presentation skills in UK, Europe and Singapore. Before that, she worked for BBC Radio for seventeen years as an overseas announcer, producer and interviewer. She is now President of U3A Northern Beaches which has a healthy membership of just over 1,200.

Upcoming Events


We are delighted to advise these new activities.


There is a book club meeting on Friday 5th August at 11:00 am and 2nd September at Pymble Golf Club and we will be discussing a book we have all read. We already have sufficient members and anyone else wanting to join would need to go on a waiting list.                               

Jane Dale

Golf group

For those golfing members who would like to have a social game once a month, the PBH Golf group has commenced, meeting at North Turramurra golf course on the first Tuesday of each month at 1pm. Our next round is on Tuesday 5th July. Currently we play 10 holes (not nine due to the course layout) and play once a month. The current cost for 10 holes is $18 while a cost of an electric cart, if required, is $25. It is intended to increase this to playing 18 holes and possibly to twice monthly over time.

Whether members are current golfers or beginners, both are most welcome. Please contact Simon Solomons
