This is an invitation to retired – or about to be retired, active men and women of good character, living on the Hibiscus Coast, to become members of this newly established Club. Here you will be meeting up with others at future monthly gatherings - to enjoy conviviality and listen to excellent guest speakers.

Successful applicants will be invited to participate in low-cost bi-monthly outings to interesting places and events. For those who have an interest in keeping fit, our Rebus Ramblers of Gulf Harbour, meet weekly on a Monday morning for a 2 hour stroll to places near and far, followed by a refreshing coffee at a nearby Cafe.

Establishment of other "Interest Groups" is anticipated e.g, travel, movies, dining out, sketching, retail therapy, digital photography, computer studies, geneology  and floral art.

We have two quality luncheons during the year, one mid-year and the other pre-Christmas for members and partners. 

Meetings are held at the Gulf Harbour Yacht Club, 1299 Laurie Southwick Parade, Gulf Harbour at 9.30am until noon on the 2nd Wednesday of each month (excluding January)


After a short business session, one of our own members is a Club speaker (10-15 mins) followed by morning tea and then an external Guest Speaker. Meetings conclude by midday. The annual Subscription is $30 plus a “one off” $25 joining fee.

​Our Club is the 54th Rebus Club in New Zealand and the 4th to be established on the Hibiscus Coast. Rebus is an organization which has its origins in the world-wide Probus movement which was a Rotary sponsored community service program.

However, unlike Rotary, we have no service obligations such as fund-raising or amenity establishment. Many of us have “been there, done that".


Now is the time of life to simply indulge ourselves with new friendships and leisure activities.
