Activities & Outings

Each month, there is a Club excursion event to a place or places of interest, with the emphasis on learning, discovery and socialising. In December, this takes the form of a special Christmas lunch.

Once a year a trip may be planned that involves several days away, outside of Melbourne or beyond Victoria.

Activities are planned by the Committee, and are advertised through the general meetings, the newsletter and this website. In all of the Club’s activities, we are mindful of cost. The committee works hard to arrange interesting quality events that are affordable for members.

Forthcoming Trips and Events

Here's what's planned for our Club activities and outings in the near future ...

(To find out about the guest speakers planned for upcoming general meetings see the ‘Meetings and Speakers’ page.)

Living with COVID!

As we get on with life under "COVID-normal" conditions, our club activities and outings have recommenced, subject to COVID-safe rules.

Club members will continue to be informed of forthcoming excursions and luncheons plus how and when to book via email, the Probian newsletter and this website.

Please do not attend a Club activity if you are feeling unwell or have any COVID symptoms
