PROBUS is an association of retired and semi-retired people who join together to provide regular opportunities to keep the mind active, expand interests and enjoy the fellowship of new friends.

The word PROBUS is an amalgum of the words PROfessional and BUSiness.

Clubs are non-policical and non-sectarian; non-profit making and non-fundraising.

PROBUS originated in the United Kingdom in 1965 and is now a world-wide movement.  It's phenomenal growth is testament to the need for today's retirees to remain active and involved with a group of like-minded people.

There are Men's Clubs, Ladies Clubs and Combined Clubs.

All Clubs are sponsored by Rotary Clubs and, on formation are self-governing but must always remain within the limits of their Constitution.


Membership is open to members of the community who are retired or semi-retired, are of good character and who appreciate and value opportunities for social contact with others.

A requirement for our Club is that interested people are sponsored by a current financial member and attend at least two meetings as a visitor to see if they feel comfortable before committing to join.  If they do not have a sponsor, one can be arranged for them.

New Members will be introduced to the Club by their sponsor in a brief ceremony during a meeting.


There is an annual membership fee payable upon joining.  Fees are set annually and become due at the AGM held in March each year.   Currently the fees are $20 per annum.

All visitors and members pay an entry fee at each meeting to cover the cost of venue hire and morning tea.  Currently this is $10 per meeting.
