Nelson Bay Probus Club had an enjoyable day trip to Taree on November 1.

In the true Probus manner it was full of fun, friendship and fellowship.

A total of 48 members and wives were coached to Taree with Port Stephens Coaches. In Taree the group boarded the Manning River Cruise – a delightful four hour luncheon cruise.

The travellers headed towards Old Bar and cruised around Oxley and Mitchell Islands, plus Croki.

Morning tea was served with beautiful fresh scones. Lunch was a lovely baked dinner and deserts.

“The day was perfect,” Ken Shadler, past Probus club president, said. “We saw different birds some of them fly from Siberia to nest here.

“The cruise opened our eyes as to the size of the Manning River system. The Manning river has two outlets to the ocean.

“In all it was a cracker of a day.”
