WHAT IS A U3A
The University of the Third Age is a mutual aid self-help movement - a modern community of scholars and artists, catering primarily for people in the Third Age of their lives.

OUR AIMS
The overall aim of Beaudesert U3A Inc. is to provide the members with both the stimulus of mental and physical activity and the satisfaction of a continuing contribution to society. It will enable them to take up new interests and to extend old ones. It will offer the joy of learning for the sake of learning: it will open up new horizons for them - unrestricted by the requirements of vocation or the desire for qualifications, and it will do so, principally by drawing upon the extensive life experience, skills and energies of the members.

Travel and Adventure Group River Trip

On Sunday 20th December, 35 U3A members and friends travelled by bus to Mowbray Park, East Brisbane to join Brisbane Cruises on a 3 hour sunset cruise and dinner on the Brisbane River. Two other members joined us there.
Due to everybody arriving early, we were able to leave ahead of schedule. The 5 people being picked up in Jimboomba were all waiting and we continued on to Brisbane with no traffic holdups, arriving approximately half an hour ahead of time. We were able to wait on the river bank and enjoy a beautiful cool sea breeze after a very hot day in Beaudesert.

We travelled downstream to the Gateway and upstream to the Story Bridge which was lit up with red and green lights. We watched lightning from some storms but we were fortunate that they stayed away.
Judging by the buzz of conversation on the bus and on board the boat, we would like to think that everyone had an enjoyable time. The bus was extremely comfortable. A big thank you to the bus driver for an excellent, safe trip.
Also many thanks to our photographer, Tina Jones.

For anyone interested in contributing and being part of our travel group, our next meeting will be held on the Beaudesert Library deck at 10am on Monday 11th January. BYO morning tea and any ideas for more activities.

Cheers,
