A newer activity of the Probus Club of Melbourne North, introduced in 2016, is a guided walk to a place of interest. These are held on the third Tuesday of each alternate month. Different members of the Club share in leading the walk. Members and guests meet at a designated location in Melbourne, easily accessible with public transport, for a guided walk, concluding with an optional lunch together.
The last walk, in October 2019, was a visit to Altona Beach and shopping strip.
The next Walk of Interest, the first for 2020, will be held on Tuesday 3rd March (this Walk is on the first Tuesday, since the third Tuesday is when the Club members will be on a trip to Gippsland). The March walk will be to the St Kilda Pier.
