The Probus Club of Breakfast Point was formed in April 2011 when local seniors living in a new suburb, recognised their need for meeting and making new friends.

One of the earliest recorded contacts between Europeans and the Wangal Aboriginal tribe in 1788, took place mid way along the Parramatta River at a point jutting out into the river, whci became known as Breakfast Point. By 1886, in tha area, by then known as Mortlake, the Australian Gas Light Company started production. For over 100 years until its closure in 1990, AGL remained a Sydney landmark. In 2000 the land became one of the largest urban renewal projects in Sydney and the new suburb of Breakfast Point was born.
By 2011 more than 1300 homes and apartments were occupied. The need for social interaction for new residents became clear. On Thursday April 14, 2011, the Breakfast Point Rotary Club (formed 2008) sponsored the Foundation Meeting of the Probus Club of Breakfast Point.
The inaugural meeting was attended by 89 members. Rotarian Helmut Buss, the Incoming District Probus Chairman District 9680, spoke on the history and achievements of Rotary International and the role and growth of Probus worldwide.
In three months membership grew to 157, fledgling special interest groups started and members went on trips to Leura, Old Government House Parramatta and Hyde Park Barracks. The high level of interest in meeting and making friends demonstrated that the club was meeting a need in the community.
2017. The Club continued to be both happy and successful. Well attended monthly meetings, supplemented by interest group activities, outings, trips, dinners and theatre events,were meeting a wide range of member interests. The Cabarita/Breakfast Point Probus Club, formed in 2014,in the same area, also by then had a large and active Club and was looking to close their membership at 250.
Since 2017 Our Club has gone from strength to strength, adding more activities such as Film Festivals, and Croquet; more Outings locally, overnight, interstate and overseas have included four trips to Japan, one to South Africa, one to Norfolk Island, one already to France and another in the planning stage. The large waiting list suggests it is time to think of starting a third Club!
