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. Our latest newsletter was sent out on 2nd June. If you would like to receive the newsletters yourself, just sign up.

We are also providing all sorts of home-based activities for you to do within the comfort of your home.

Due to COVID-19, all of our indoor classes and activities are currently in abeyance until further notice. We are, however, keeping many of these classes going via videoconferencing and email discussions. As of 18th May, some of our outdoor classes have begun to take tentative steps to re-start with appropriate social distancing etc.

Nillumbik U3A provides a wide range of courses including languages, physical activities, cards & puzzles, and classes related to music, art, literature, history, science and more. Our courses are open to all retired and semi-retired people. We currently have around 650 members enrolled in around 75 different courses. There are no entry requirements and no exams. All those involved in the U3A are volunteers. Our membership is just $50 a year and participation in classes is then free.

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 around 100 U3As in both urban and rural areas.

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