Add life to your years - Creating community with Yen

Every day there are people coming together all over our City to improve their health and wellbeing, make a contribution to the community, make new friends or simply to get out and about. Yen is one of those people.

Probus and Rotary

If you are retired or semi-retired, Probus and Rotary Clubs offer regular gatherings, which are a great opportunity to meet others with similar interests.

Men’s Sheds

Men's Sheds are springing up all around Australia. Men come together to work on personal projects, such as making furniture or restoring bicycles for a local school.

University of the Third Age (U3As) are community groups who focus on education as well as exercise and social activities of interest to their retired members. The annual subscription cost is low, as activities are provided by members on a voluntary basis.

Joining one of the two U3As in Boroondara is a fantastic way to stay active and engaged with your community.
