Welcome – womin je ka

During the current crisis, we are circulating a weekly newsletter to our members and beyond – around 1,000 people in total. You can read these newsletters on our newsletter page. If you would like to receive the newsletters yourself, just sign up.

We are also providing some COVID-19 related resources on this website.


The following message was sent to all of our members on Tuesday, 24th March.

The Committee has recognised the inevitable and cancelled all of our Term 2 activities.

U3A stands for University of the Third Age – the time of active retirement from full time employment.

The term “University” is used in its original sense as a community of people sharing ideas and knowledge. There are no exams, entry levels or qualifications necessary to participate and no awards are given. All you need to bring to our classes are your life experiences. With ageing populations, the U3A movement is rapidly spreading in many parts of the world.

Victoria now has over 100 U3As in both urban and rural areas. U3As are based on a cooperative system where members are encouraged to participate through the following: joining a class, leading a course/activity, or assisting with planning and administration. All of this is done on a voluntary basis.

We aim to provide creative, educational, and recreational opportunities for mature aged people in our community. Registration is low cost and classes are held in a friendly and informal environment.

Nillumbik U3A Office open at Old Eltham Courthouse, Brougham Street & Main Road, Eltham 3095
Mondays & Thursdays 10am-noon in term time only
