Welcome to Paradise Point on the Probus South Pacific web site


Probus is a local, national, and international association of retired people who come together in non-political, non-sectarian, non-profit, autonomous clubs which provide regular opportunities for members to meet others in similar circumstances, with similar levels of interest, make new friends, and maintain and expand their interests.

Probus exist to fill a need of retired persons in the community who have been accustomed to vocational activity in their working lives. The principal objective of Probus is to create and maintain a homogeneous group that provides the fellowship and intellectual stimulation that otherwise tends to be lost in retirement. Most importantly, you will make new friends with whom to share the many enjoyable experiences on offer

The club always welcomes visitors to attend our meetings, functions and activities. However, it is Club policy to request visitors who attend three or more meetings, functions and activities to advise if they intend completing an application for membership form.


Members and visitors meet on the first Tuesday of each month at 9.30 for 10.00 am at Paradise Point Bowls Club, 22 Thrush Avenue, Paradise Point, QLD, 42L6 to deal briefly with club business, and hear a guest speaker speak on an interesting topic. Following each meeting the Bowls Club serve lunch. Meetings will normally conclude at 11.30.
