OUR CURRENT COVID STATUS : Due to government health restrictions all face to face classes are now suspended. Some classes continue to operate via ZOOM.  The U3A office is closed but you can still contact us by email  at info@u3adarebin.com.au or via mobile phone 0492 817 478.

U3A Darebin is an organisation for people over 50 who are not in full-time paid employment and who wish to keep their minds and bodies active. U3A is about sharing skills and interests, to allow people to enjoy educational, creative, social and leisure activities in a relaxed environment.
