A Big Welcome for Visitors to Probus Club of Ballarat South

A message from our President

Welcome to visitors of Ballarat South Probus Club website.  2019 will be another fun filled year with fellowship and friendship amongst our members and visitors.

Our Probus Club was formed in 2008 and became the seventeenth Probus Club in Ballarat.  There are 130 members who come from across Ballarat and surrounds and have a wide variety of past experiences.

Our monthly meetings are held at 9.30am on the second Thursday of each month. Members are updated about our 20 plus activity groups, enjoy morning tea followed by a guest speaker and then go out for lunch. It is through the activity groups that we meet and form friendships with people with similar interests.  Activities change as members’ needs change.  A list of activities can be found on this website.

This is a dynamic and progressive club. You are welcome to join our members as a visitor to meetings by contacting the Secretary by email or letter.  All details are on this website under Contact Us.


Probus Club of Ballarat South

Why Probus?

The name “Probus” is derived from joining abbreviations of the words “Professional” and “Business”.

Membership is open to all retired or semi-retired people, whether or not they were in engaged in Professional or Business careers.

All Probus Groups are formed by Rotary Clubs, and once started, are autonomous.

Probus Clubs are not like, for example, Service Clubs.

We are a not-for-profit Organisation, non-Political, non-Sectarian, and do not engage in fund-raising.

Joining a Probus Club provides you with an opportunity to make new friends, engage in activities you wish to, and avoid isolation and boredom.
