It grew out of the Rotary Club back in nineteen eighty eight,

The Probus Club of Narrabri and it proved to be first rate.


It wasn’t formed for raising funds, just for fellowship and fun,

For all of the preceding years, that is just what they have done.


With visits out to see Sawn Rocks and visiting Cubbaroo

The Telescope and Yarrie Lake and the Caves and Coona too.

Then Gunnedah and Boggabri and then to Mt. Kaputar

Keepit Dam and Split Rock Dam, then a fish farm was the star.


Their first trip out to Inverell and a bus trip to Wee

With Mudgee, Gulgong and Hillend just to even up the score.

Tamworth’s Calala Cottage next, the guest house at Barrington

And then a trip to Dubbo Gaol, art and pottery and so on.


A car trip out to Pilliga and Coona and Vickery Mine

Before heading to The Entrance where they found the weather fine.

Then coach trips, down to Newcastle, Nundle and Murrurrundi

Later a trip to Lightning Ridge, and again as time goes by.


A trip out to a Pecan Farm then an Emu Farm came next

Then back again to Inverell, I don’t know on what pretext.

With Fun Days scattered here and there just to keep members in touch

Like golf, and bowls and throwing darts and Gum Boot Throwing and such.


They’d visit some sites more than once like Newcastle and Dubbo

And Bingara and Baan Baa are somewhere they’d like to go.

They visited Hunter Gardens and a trip or two to Bourke

With tag-a-longs to local sites and somehow it seemed to work.


Off to Milton/Ulladulla and a trip to Sydney Show

Another trip to Inverell, and again I didn’t go.

With trips off to the Central Coast and to ‘Jazz out on the Lake’

Then another trip to Yamba where they had a pleasant break.


They travelled on The New England, Niangala and Armidale

With a short stop at Uralla by which other small towns pale.

More trips around the local sites, like the ‘Sculptures in the Scrub’.

And other tag-a-longs enjoyed by the members of our Club.


A coach trip to Victoria and a few nights spent in Bright

Gold Coasts ‘Outback Spectacular’ was a pleasure and delight.

Had trips to several musicals, ‘The Phantom’, ‘Les Mis’ and ‘Ghost’.

And ‘My Fair Lady’ was our last, I enjoyed that one the most.


‘The Hunter Gardens’ at Christmas, and a trip to Broken Hill

Another one this year to Bourke and they talk about it still.

Let’s celebrate our thirtieth with a look back at our past

At all the great times we’ve enjoyed, we know they won’t be our last.


So here’s to our past thirty years, raise your glasses give a cheer

And spare a thought for all of those members no longer here.
