Probus Club of Bobbin Head



The wide ranging topics that our speakers present are a highlight of our regular monthly meetings. They are often an inspiration for further study or interest, a centrepiece for conversation within a wider group of friends or simply a wonderful enhancement of knowledge and understanding.

We have heard how the Harbour Bridge climb was finally established after many years of hard negotiation and effort, what the sequence of events were over a period of 100 years leading up to the first world war and we have been inspired by the life story of Australian of the Year nominee, Ambre Hammond, one of our great Australian musical talents.
