A brief history

Our U3A Upper Yarra started in March 2010 as the 97th U3A in Victoria. It became an instant success, thanks to the variety of courses for our increasing membership and the commitment of our tutors and other volunteers.

Our U3A is organised by a constituted voluntary Committee of Management supported by other volunteers and the Class Leaders.

Our motivation is to keep our minds and bodies active in a social environment.

Contact us about joining, our courses or volunteering.

U3A Upper Yarra embraces:

  • Reefton, East Warburton, Warburton, Millgrove
  • Yarra Junction, Gladysdale, Three Bridges, Powelltown
  • Launching Place, Don Valley, Hoddles Creek
  • Woori Yallock, Yellingbo, Seville, Wandin, Wesburn
