The Probus movement had its genesis in two ancestors - both in the UK and both established by Rotary Clubs. The first club in the South Pacific region was the Probus Club of Kapiti Coast, New Zealand, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Paraparaumu in 1974, followed by the Probus Club of Hunters Hill, NSW Australia in 1976.
