About our shed

About Us

BAYSIDE MEN'S SHED, BEAUMARIS is a community- based organisation, run by men for men, enabling them to get together, share time, swap yarns, exchange ideas and be creative.

Members of Men's Sheds come from all walks of life with a wide range of skills and of various ages. The bond that unites them is that they are people with time on their hands and they would like to do something meaningful with that time.

Members are able to work on projects at their own pace, in their own time, in the company and with the support of other members. A key focus is to advance the well-being and health of its members and to encourage social inclusion.

​The Shed is thankful and proud of the support provided by Bayside City Council.

Shed Activities

Positive impacts


"I've found a great group of mates"

Mateship is an important pillar of every Men’s Shed – first and foremost the shed is a place for men to knock about with a group of like-minded mates.


“I give back to the community”

Men’s Sheds are vital community investments delivering programmes and activities that foster community spirit and contribute to building a more inclusive Australia.

Health & Wellbeing

“My health and wellbeing is better because I'm a Shedder”

Many shedders experience improved mental health outcomes. Men (and women) involved at their local Shed report increased self-esteem through participation and learning new skills; de-stigmatisation of experiencing mental health and de-stigmatisation of prevalent social issues related to mental health.

Watch — More than just a shed

The Australian Men’s Shed Association (AMSA) is the national service provider supporting more than 1,200 Men’s, Women’s and Community Sheds and is recognised as one of Australia’s largest male-based community development organisations.

AMSA was established in 2007 by a collection of Australian independent community-based Men’s Sheds to represent, support and promote the Men’s Shed movement. It was founded on the principle of sharing information between sheds and those communities wishing to establish and operate a Men’s Shed. It acts as a central hub for information exchange.
