Probus Visit “The Barn at Wombat Flat” at Neales Flat

On the 20th February 2019 The Probus Club of Eudunda and Districts Inc. saw twenty four members and two visitors meet at the Wombat Flat Barn at Neales Flat which William Woithe originally bought in 1861.

In the early 1900’s the homestead became the Neales Flat Post Office as well.

In the 1970’s Mike Roberts and Di Bills purchased the property and converted the old horse stable into an entertainment centre. Over 20 tonnes of horse manure was excavated. Because of termite damage, steel plates were concreted into the ground and bolted onto the gnarled gum posts supporting the shed.

Mike Roberts was born in New York and together with Di Bills taught at the Eudunda Area School.

Mike, being an accomplished guitar player, organises bands and singers to perform from a stage complete with sound and lighting, and has placed photos of performances on the Internet, YouTube and Facebook. One such event raised $12,000 for Cancer Research, Shows are usually held during the cooler months of the year. A maximum of 100 people with bookings essential.

Mike played and sang two songs which were enjoyed by all.
