Northam Probus Club gets guided tour of Optus Stadium

 Probus Northam’s day out on the 15 May was a coach trip to Optus Stadium for a tour.

 We invited the York and Toodyay Probus group to join us as well.

It was an enjoyable day firstly stopping at Garvey Park, Belmont, which is by the river and had a lovely morning tea.

After, we went to Optus Stadium where we were met by our tour guides Susan and Craig.

They catered for the people that needed wheelchairs and the tour was very well done.

There were great views of the city, park areas for the children the whole venue is well set out.

After, we went to lunch at the International Hotel in Belmont and the meal was first class with everyone enjoying their day.

We did have one small incident of a lady that got herself locked in the toilet at the Hotel and they could not get the door open, so she was able to get out of the toilet window.

Everyone was in great humour.
