About our shed

About Us

Since establishing the shed in 2016 and obtaining the grants to construct and deliver to the community a Men’s Shed that also meets community needs, we have now an operational shed, since the 15 December 2021.  We have included in our shed the only Omnisign Plus CO2 Laser cutter engraver for which we sort a grant for and cost $18,000. This is an industrial machine that will service the shed and community cutting or engraving wood, plastics, fibre materials, steel to .25mm and 1mm stainless steel. We offer computer training, leatherwork, wood work and metal work. We have a well equipped kitchen for any activity.

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.
