Welcome to Coffs Harbour U3A. U3A is a world-wide organisation, which began after the Second World War to help older people whose education was cut short by the hostilities. It was to be learning through fun, with courses that required no entrance qualifications, homework or exams. The spirit still continues in the 21st century.

Coffs Harbour U3A was established in 1992. It is a voluntary organisation, which aims to provide a low cost learning experience for mature-aged people. We provide a wide range of courses covering many subjects, including art, current affairs, history, languages, literature, photography, philosophy and others. The course facilitators are primarily volunteers. Some people use their trade, business or professional expertise, others are happy to share a life-long hobby or interest with like-minded people.

Classes are held in venues throughout the city and at Woolgoolga 25 kms to the north. The Coffs Harbour Community Village and the Woolgoolga Public Library are the most popular class meeting places.,

We invite you to join us for another successful year as we increase our knowledge, whilst enjoying the idyllic beaches and beautiful hinterland of the Coffs Coast.

We request that all members adhere to the current NSW Health guidelines in regards to the prevention of the spread of COVID-19. For further information please click here.
