U3A Noosa is part of an international movement of self-help, self- managed, lifelong learning co-operatives for people who are no longer in full-time work. It provides opportunities for members to share learning experiences in a wide range of areas of interest and to pursue learning not for qualifications, but for fun.
Members with a lifetime of experience, expertise or know-how in professions, occupations or through hobbies, are encouraged to become Tutors. A mutual interest in learning for fun leads to new friendships based on an expanded social experience.
It is scientifically acknowledged that keeping one's brain "working" contributes to health, wellbeing and relevance for older people.
U3A Noosa has its headquarters at Michell House in Tewantin and its facilities are well-planned and spacious with an Art Studio, a Library, an Auditorium, a Games room, a Language Laboratory, a well-equipped Computer Room, a Kitchen and a social area.
Most classes are held at Michell House 64 Poinciana Avenue, Tewantin during the week.
U3A Noosa was incorporated independently in July 1991. Initially, there were 200 members and 22 volunteer tutors. Over the ensuing years, membership has grown to an average of 800 members, with up to 60 classes covering a wide variety of subjects.
