A Welcome from the Probus Club of Eltham North

You have reached the website of the Probus Club of Eltham North Inc. We invite active retired or semi-retired people who like to keep their minds alert, expand their interests, and enjoy the fellowship of new friends, to consider becoming a member of our club. In keeping with Probus rules, we are non-political, non-sectarian and non-fund raising. Although there are single gender clubs in Australia, our club is open to both men and women, with partners or single.

The key Probus objectives are to provide fun, fellowship and friendship and we endeavour to offer our members a variety of activities such as general meetings with interesting speakers, small group activities, outings and dining out. The complete range of our activities is shown under the Site Navigation headings on the top of your screen.

We invite you to browse through our website and, if you would like more information, please contact us. You are always welcome to attend a meeting as a guest to check us out. We look forward very much to hearing from you and to answering any questions you may have.

What’s been happening


Yes, back on 29th July 1993 our club was born.  We have now been having Fun, Friendship and Fellowship for 30 years, and so at our general meeting on 3rd August we had a special celebration event to mark this significant milestone.

The event acknowledged the longest serving members of our club, followed by fun and games and, of course,  cake 🎂 and party food!.

For some extra fun our members came dressed in Probus colours of blue and yellow, with a prize awarded  for the best dressed.

Our guests of honour from the Eltham Rotary Club were their President, Ian Toohill, and their Membership Director, Jules Aussems .  Eltham Rotary was our original sponsoring organisation.  It was a pleasure to have Ian and Jules at our 30th Birthday celebration.

A pictorial summary of our fantastic celebration event follows:

As well as cake, there was party food, lollies, party hats, blowers & poppers
