About our shed

About Us

Have been operating for approximately 7/8 years at Pound rd colac. We are currently in the process of moving to a new facility at the Colac Showgrounds at Gate 2 Chapel St, Colac. We anticipate having our certificate of occupancy in the coming week, and hope to be in residence by new year 2017. We currently have 22 members. We are now in residence at our new facility and are making many and varied items from the old flooring from the rec centre. Also making planter boxes of various sizes from donated timber. Our 2 post hoist is in situ so those who have the ability can service their own vehicles.

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.
