About Cowra U3A

Cowra U3A in central western New South Wales, Australia, commenced on 21 April 1992, originating out of a public meeting. Originally meetings were held at the PCYC but due to access problems moved to the Cowra & District Senior Citizens Centre in railway lane, Cowra, in the heart of the CBD.

An annual membership fee ($40.00) is charged to cover administration. Our activities are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays during school terms (to accommodate Grandparents with child minded commitments) commencing at 9.00 am during the summer months. A charge of $2.50 per day covers morning tea and venue hire. The annual fee can be paid by in installments.

Cowra U3A is part of the Central Western Region of U3A Network NSW Inc. Regional meetings are held once a year to enable the various groups to share ideas. A library or course material is now available through the U3A Network NSW which gives the smaller groups more options for its activities.

U3A Online is a great source for people who cannot make it to the weekly activities. Courses are presented online for studying at your own pace in your own home.
