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 2023, we have almost 900 members with around 85 course options available.
Further information about all current courses is available on our course descriptions page.
Courses are currently run at various venues across Nillumbik.
U3A Members or members of the public are most welcome to offer courses in their special areas of expertise.
