Home & News

Welcome to the Eastlakes U3A website

We are based on the eastern side of Lake Macquarie and generally cover the area from Charlestown in the North to Swansea in the South and from Belmont to Warners Bay East to West.

The menu on the left will allow you to easily find the information you are looking for whether you are already a member or a potential member looking for an introduction to our U3A community.

The $45 annual membership allows you to do as many classes as your time and interests allow at no extra cost – apart from some materials. This means that for $45 per year, you could potentially be attending classes all day, every day!

Whilst U3A stands for University of the Third Age, there are no tests or marks. At this time of our lives, this organisation is purely for social, physical and mental well being. So, if you’re retired or semi-retired, have some time up your sleeves and are looking at what to do with yourself, look no further. There’s plenty here to interest you!

If you have a special topic that interests you and it’s not already being offered, maybe you’d like to consider being a Leader :)

Anyway, browse through our website and I’m sure there’s something here that will interest you. If you like what you see, spread it around your friends. We’re not a secret society! 

Flight Without Fear

Royal Newcastle Aero Club is offering a non profit program to promote aviation by helping people to overcome their fear of flying. The course is conducted annually at Newcastle Airport. The course runs on one evening each week for six weeks, from 6:00pm to 9:00pm. On the Saturday following the completion of the course, participants take a return flight to Brisbane, spending an enjoyable day in the city.
The next course begins at 6pm on September 30th. Interested people should ring Liz 0423 084 269 for more details.
