Membership Fees

The full membership fee is $70. From 1st July to beginning of December, the joining fee is $35.  Associate members $40.



Use the new free bus service to get to U3A-Adelaide

The 861 / 863 / 864 /865 bus runs east along Currie and Grenfell Streets, then turns right into Pulteney Street and the 19x buses enter Pulteney Street via Wakefield Street.

All these buses stop in Hurtle Square and it is a very short walk through to U3A-Adelaide.



If you have been into the common room at the Box Factory you will have seen the bookshelves which are gradually filling as members bring in books they no longer want.  Borrowing is hassle free - just take the book you want and return it or another when you have finished.
