The idea behind this page is to show you that it is not just courses or learning stuff. Its also about about being out and about with like minded people who enjoy companionship, following their own interests or trying something new. From chess to going on a boat cruise from exploring the night sky to learning how to paint or enhancing your skills. You will also find here some things here from our archive, some of the really successful things we have done in the past that we don’t want to lose track of, who knows maybe the new members would like them, or something similar, to be offered again
An update on the Geology course. This week we had our second field trip, Gold Fields. We took in The Red Cliffs at Heathcote then the Victoria Hills Mining Reserve at Bendigo.

In pre-covid times we enjoyed many outings. We will return to those happier times in 2022 and reinstate the outings component of Sunbury U3A.
The outings have included a visit to the old Clarke mansion at Rupertswood. Some of the outings that our members particularly enjoyed are listed below.

Sunbury U3A Members With a Story to Tell
U3A’s are full of interesting people, people with fascinating stories. I mean where do all the fighter pilots, Olympic athletes, explorers, antique experts, cuckoo clock makers etc. go when they retire. They don’t go anywhere, they are amongst us and are really interesting people to talk to. Now I don’t claim we have any of the aforementioned amongst us (if we do let me know I will coerce them into a talk), but the principle is the same.
If you know of a member that has a story to tell, please let the webmaster know for follow up
