Our Short History

Nillumbik U3A began in June 2008 when a public meeting was held to gauge interest in such an organisation. A steering committee was formed and in Term 4, 2008 four courses were held as an offshoot of Whittlesea U3A.

In November 2008 Nillumbik U3A was officially launched, and we started our own courses at Hurstbridge in February 2009. Following continued success and interest a new campus was launched at Eltham in July 2012 and as at March  2019 we have almost 600 members with 52 course options available.

For further information about us and our courses use the Courses link above.

U3A Members or members of the public are most welcome to offer courses in their special areas of expertise.

If you would like to offer your services as a tutor please contact our office staff or you can download an application form here.

             A handbook for Tutors and Class Leaders is attached here.

Courses are currently run at different venues as indicated in the Course details. Since the opening of our Eltham Campus some courses are conducted at the Old Courthouse in Eltham or at the Nillumbik Community Health Centre.

As we expand our activities, classes and events will be run at various venues throughout the Shire of Nillumbik.
