The principal objective of every Probus Club is to create and maintain a homogeneous group that provides the fellowship and intellectual stimulation that otherwise tends to be lost in retirement.

The first meeting of the Probus Club of Melbourne North was held on Wednesday 9th November 1994. It celebrated its 25th Anniversary in November 2019.

Normally the Club meets regularly on the fourth Tuesday of each month (excepting December) at 10:30 am. A Club business meeting is held first, followed by morning tea and then a guest speaker. The majority of members at each meeting like to remain for lunch. Members of the club enjoy many other activities – explore the links above. Guests are welcomed at general meetings and activities of the Club.

For the time being, regular monthly meetings will be held at Windy Hill, Napier Street, Essendon. Parking is available across the road in Napier Street. Using public transport, use tram route 59, and alight at Stop 41 (Fletcher/Napier Streets), then walk up Napier Street.
