Retired ?– It’s Your Time to Live, Learn and Enjoy Life

U3A Batemans Bay has been providing intellectually stimulating activities and presentations, as well as courses in the arts, sciences, history, leisure, language and fitness for 26 years.

Newly retired or new to the area? Have you been looking to find ways to keep your brain active, develop new networks, and explore new interests?

Then U3A Batemans Bay is for you. Become a member to enjoy the advantages!

As an organisation we are unique in that every person involved, including the committee and the tutors, are volunteers. This Semester we are offering a program over 50 courses of various lengths. These courses take various forms including one day seminars, classes, discussion groups, a walking group, our choir “The U3A Singers” and a number of Wine Appreciation Groups.

New courses on offer this term include Boosting your Cultural Intelligence, Keeping Your Spine and Brain Healthy, Meditation and Mindfulness, Public Speaking, The Quest for Perennial Wisdom, Let’s Play Scrabble and Southern Sensations, a social group meeting in the south of the shire. These courses join our continuing and returning courses, details of which can be found by clicking the Courses tab, on our website and scrolling down to ‘Courses and Activities Currently Available’. Alternatively, our newsletter, which contains details of the program, can be found in the Shire’s libraries.

Our new member’s fee is $50, which includes a $5 joining fee. Membership entitles you to participate in as many different courses as you wish. Our membership fee is used to pay for the many venues that we use around the Eurobodalla. This ensures equity and affordability of U3A membership.

At the heart of our organisation is the desire to enhance the intellectual, social and physical wellbeing of our community. Many of our members form lifelong friendships, learn new skills, and enjoy retirement together.

Our course tutors bring a broad range of skills and experiences to their offerings. They keep our U3A Batemans Bay thriving and we could not continue to offer such a wonderful selection of courses and activities each semester if we didn’t have such a great group of volunteers. Why not join their ranks? If you have an interest or a passion that you would like to share then look no further…we will do everything to help you put your course together.

Tutors get a lot of satisfaction out of sharing their time knowledge and interests, and our community benefits from hundreds of volunteer hours.
