Discover the rich tradition of self-help adult education that defines U3A Gympie. Our journey began in 1987, and today we are proud to have a vibrant community of approximately 250 members. We’re dedicated to providing a wide array of intellectually stimulating, physically invigorating, and socially engaging activities specially tailored for individuals aged 50 and above.

At U3A Gympie, our primary goal is to make learning not only enriching but also incredibly enjoyable. Our welcoming environment is perfect for those who are retired, semi-retired, or empty nesters. We understand that the pursuit of knowledge should be pressure-free, so you won’t find homework, tests, or any overwhelming demands here.

One of the remarkable aspects of our organization is the wealth of knowledge and skills that our retired members bring to the table. Our dedicated volunteers generously contribute their time and expertise to ensure U3A Gympie thrives. As a result, our membership fees remain exceptionally affordable, and we’re able to maintain a relaxed, no-pressure atmosphere.

U3A Gympie operates as an Incorporated Association and holds comprehensive insurance coverage, including Public Liability Insurance, Volunteers Personal Accident Insurance, and Association Liability Insurance, through U3A Network Queensland. Our commitment to safety and quality education is unwavering.

We have no awards, no entry requirements, and no exams – just a passion for learning and a supportive community that values the joy of discovery. Embrace the spirit of self-help adult education with U3A Gympie.
