Our key focus is to promote and support the health and wellbeing of men.
Our Shed is a place for men to come together, a place of creativity, teamwork and for celebrating community spirit.
Our Shed is more than just a Shed we meet new friends, relate our experiences mostly with a laugh, sometimes with compassion for someone going through a hard time.
Or maybe you just want to come along for a cuppa and a chat. You are all welcome.
Our members who include men from the local community produce wooden toys for the underpriverleged children within the local community and looking for new members.
There is an open invitation for all men to come and share our cameraderie.

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.
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.
