We are the state-wide incorporated body covering all U3As in Western Australia. Most other states in Australia have established a mechanism for fostering interaction between individual groups within their own state, and with the national and international movement.  At a meeting held on 4th July, 2012 at the University of Western Australia,  U3A Network WA was formed for the same purpose.  It was stressed that each individual club would maintain its own independence and continue to be run by its own Management Committee. Seven of the ten active U3As across Western Australia volunteered to participate in the new communications Network.   All new and old clubs are welcome.  No club is too small to participate.


  • Promote the U3A movement in Western Australia
  • Facilitate communication between local and national U3A groups
  • Provide support for existing U3A groups and for the formation of new groups
  • Establish connections with local and state government agencies and with other appropriate groups in the community


The Network has been holding state conferences on a biennial basis. The last WA  Network Conference  was held in Mandurah and hosted by Mandurah U3A on 16th and 17th October 2018. The 2020 Conference planned for Busselton was cancelled due to Covid 19 restrictions and the next State Conference is proposed for 2022.
