Welcome to U3A Gympie

U3A Gympie has a long history of self-help, adult education. We began in 1987 and currently have over 150 members. A range of educational, physically, and socially stimulating activities are aimed at over 50s. Our aim is to be both interesting and fun. Children are not catered for, so our members are mostly empty nesters, semi-retired, or retired. The emphasis is on enjoyment, so no homework, no tests, and no pressure.

Retired people have a wide range of skills which are put to excellent use through U3A. Our organisation is run entirely by such volunteers.  Because all of our classes, social activities, and administration is provided by volunteers our membership costs are very low. Also there are no awards, no entry requirements, no exams. Self-help adult education is the basis of U3A.

As an Incorporated Association U3A Gympie Inc. holds Public Liability Insurance, Volunteers Personal Accident Insurance and Association Liability Insurance through U3A Network Queensland.
