He makes sure that the bus is comfortable and air conditioned for members.

Last Holiday Corowa and Bright


The last tour was based in Corowa. Corowa is a town in the state of New South Wales in Australia. It is on the bank of the Murray River, the border between New South Wales and Victoria, opposite the Victorian town of Wahgunyah. Corowa is the administrative centre of Corowa Shire. The name could have derived from an Aboriginal word referring to the curra pine which yielded gum used by Aborigines to fasten the heads of spears to the shafts. Another translation is rocky river.


There are two bridges over the Murray to Wahgunyah in Victoria: the heritage-listed John Foord Bridge and the Federation Bridge (opened on 2 April 2005). The town in conjunction with nearby town Rutherglen has an Australian Rules football team (Corowa-Rutherglen) competing in the Ovens & Murray Football League.

Bright in the Autumn








Richard organised for Whittlesea U3A members to travel to Bright to see the Autumn foliage and allow everyone to discover this special time in Bright.

Our recent picnic to Yan Yean Reservoir was successfully enjoyed by all.
