Probus is an association of retired and semi-retired people who join together in clubs, the basic purpose of which is to provide regular opportunities for them to keep their minds active, expand their interests and to enjoy the fellowship of new friends.


Probus originated in the UK in 1965. The first Probus Clubs were formed in New Zealand in 1974, and in Australia in 1976. Probus has filled a need for today’s active retirees; so much so that the growth has been phenomenal it is now a worldwide movement.
