U3A South Australia was formed in 2006 and is the peak body representing 17 U3A member organisations across the State in metropolitan or regional locations. Each U3A in South Australia is independent and run by an elected management committee of members. Everyone is encouraged to contribute voluntarily to the running of their local U3A to ensure it is an active and vibrant organisation.


U3A Network Victoria is the peak body for 100+ Member U3As representing around 35,000 members. U3A Network Victoria is operated by its elected volunteer Committee, a number of sub committees and workgroups, plus our paid officers. A quarterly meeting is held with a Council of Delegates, representing each member U3A.


There are 69 U3As in New South Wales and the ACT. They are divided into six non-metropolitan regions and one metropolitan region. Each region has a Regional Representative who is also a member of the Network Committee.


Tasmania does not have a network of U3A’s but has individual U3A’s throughout the State. A list of these can be found on the website of U3A ONLINE – Tasmania


U3A ACT is Canberra’s only U3A. It is incorporated in the Australian Capital Territory. Since starting in 1986, it has grown from 100 people to more than 4000 members. In 2007, U3A ACT celebrated its 21st birthday with a National Conference in Canberra, which included a paper by Michael Dwyer on the history of the first 21 years of U3A-ACT.
