Probus is a not-for-profit social club established to cater to active community members who are retired or no longer working full-time.

Probus aims to combat loneliness and social isolation and encourage members to be active in their retirement. Over 1700 Probus Clubs have over 125,000 members throughout Australia and New Zealand. There are mixed Probus Clubs and clubs for men or women only.

The Redlands Probus Club is a mixed club established over 40 years ago. In addition to the regular monthly meetings, the club provides its members with activities and opportunities for social interaction. Members enjoy golf, morning chat groups, monthly luncheons, movies, and trips (local, interstate, and international). The club holds a Christmas in July luncheon and a Christmas celebration luncheon in December (instead of the monthly general meeting).

Probus invites guest speakers to address monthly general meetings on subjects that interest most members. The monthly chat groups are regularly attended by members who discuss topical issues aimed at solving world issues. Occasionally, a guest speaker is invited to a chat group to provide a fresh perspective on contentious issues.

The club has no religious or political affiliations and welcomes all new members.

The club’s meetings are held at 10:00am on the third Wednesday of each month (except December) at the Redlands RSL Club, 8 Passage Street, Cleveland. Please visit us or contact Ken Westgarth (our Vice President) at 0402 035 001 or email us at [email protected].
