U3A Term 2 Enrolments Are Open

Are you over 50, retired or semi retired and looking for a new interest?

U3A Batemans Bay Term 2 classes will begin on Wednesday 26 April at various venues throughout the shire.

U3A Batemans Bay, has been providing courses and social activities for the over 50s for more than 25 years. As an organisation we are unique in that every person involved, including the committee and the tutors are volunteers. The majority of our tutors are members who offer their time, knowledge and interests to others. Members of the community are also invited to offer courses by contacting

Our current 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. Some courses may have a small charge for materials.

Our program can be accessed by clicking the Courses tab, on our website and scrolling down to ‘Courses and Activities Currently Available’. Activities are classified under the broad headings of History and Culture, Science and General Interest, Literary Activities, Personal Development, Arts and Crafts, Physical Activities and Recreational Activities. We also offer a Saturday Talks program.

There are 40 different activities this term. New classes include Dr Merv Bendle’s, The Arthurian Mysteries, (you will need to be quick for this one), Beginners Chess, and Solving Cryptic Crosswords Together. Psychologist Bill Radley is once again running his popular Learning to Relax course and Dr Rae Luckie is offering two creative writing courses which unfortunately had to be postponed last term. We also have several WAGS - Wine Appreciation Groups, which meet monthly to enjoy good food and learn more about wine in the company of like minded people.
