U3A is an  abbreviation for University of the Third Age, an idea originally conceived in France  The third age is that time of life when we are active in retirement.  Don’t let the word “university” put you off.  There are no exams or prerequisites for courses.  We believe in learning for pleasure and you can choose from a wide variety of courses - craft, fitness, hobby, lifestyle - in fact, as long as we can find a group leader and sufficient people interested we can offer almost anything.

There are numerous U3A groups throughout Australia and South Australia has 19 autonomous


In 2015 the courses offered Include computing, KaDenCe Choir, patchwork and quilting, walking groups, book club, Tai Chi, Armchair Travel,  Meditation Course, Coffee & Chat,  Visits to popular attractions using public transport.        Community interest presentations by COTA, etc. Courses are held at a number of venues such as CWA facilities and also in private homes.  Group leaders are all locals who volunteer their time and expertise.

To attend any courses please call the number opposite If you have any skills you may wish to help others. You don’t have to be a trained teacher just enthusiastic about your subject.
