The flagpole on the point, marks the spot where reportedly in 1788 Captain Hunter met the local Aboriginal Wangal Clan as he was eating breakfast.   He was leading an exploration up the Parramatta River at the time.

Club History

One of the earliest recorded contacts between Europeans and the Wangal Aboriginal tribe.

In 1788, mid way along the Parramatta River. By 1886, in the same area known as Mortlake,  the Australian Gas Light Company started production. For over 100 years AGL remained a Sydney landmark until its closure in 1990. 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.

A Management Team was formed with Foundation President Ron Schmid; Senior Vice President Col Cooksey; Vice President Bonnie Pereira; Secretary Philippa Harrington and Treasurer Elizabeth Walker.

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 demonstrated that the club was meeting a need in the community.

2012 - By the first AGM in 2012 club membership was over 200 and a membership cap of 248 was voted in at the AGM.  In one year the Club had become a valuable community asset . Members commented on how many more people they knew through their involvement with Probus, and how they have enjoyed “fun, fellowship and friendship” through their participation in meetings and the many activities and groups.  

2017. The Club continues to be both happy and successful. Well attended monthly meetings, supplemented by interest group activities, outings, trips, dinners and theatre events, meet a wide range of member interests. The Cabarita/Breakfast Point Probus Club, formed in 2014, is also a large and active Club in the same area.
