U3A Wynyard started in early 2015, following a public meeting in July 2014 to gauge local community interest. It is one of fourteen such groups in Tasmania (this number is increasing rapidly), over 300 in Australia and many thousands around the world. We have now completed our ninth semester and have assembled a varied and exciting programme of classes for semester 2 2019, which starts on September 2; we believe there should be something to interest everyone. So far we have offered classes in art, bird identification, creative writing, sustainable living, French, German and Italian, meditation and relaxation, cryptic crosswords, drama and theatre, various aspects of science, history of WWI, bird watching, gin appreciation and cider making and dozens more topics than there is space to mention here (click here for a list of all the classes we offered in our first nine terms).
We occasionally hold Open Forums to which non-members are welcome and provide an opportunity for people to find out more about us, as well as enjoying a stimulating session on a variety of subjects.
We use the Wynyard Showground Hall and Poultry Room, next to each other on Jackson Street, as our main venues, and we can be contacted by email, the postal service, this website or face-to-face during our office sessions; click here to discover full details.
