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.

Just outlining a couple of points:

1  The $45 annual membership allows you to do as many classes as your time and vacancies allows at no extra cost (with the exception of some classes where a fee is payable to the leader for material use only). This means that for $45 per year, you could potentially be attending classes all day, every day!

2  Whilst U3A stands for University of the Third Age, there are no tests and no studies. At this time of our lives, this organisation is purely for social, physical and mental wellbeing. So, if you're over 55, 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 nterest you. If you like what you see, spread it around your friends. We're not a secret society!

We look forward to meeting you :)
