About Us

The Mossman Men’s Shed welcomes men, of all ages, and of all abilities.

Our vision is for men in our community to :

  • remain socially active, and enjoy the company of like-minded men

  • share and develop skills, particularly in manual labour such as woodwork, metalwork, maintenance skills and restoration

  • provide a safe, friendly and nurturing environment in which to do so

  • experience satisfaction from the completion of community projects

  • mentor youth from our community

  • participate in fundraising activities

  • ensure and observe safe work practices

We encourage  values of compassion, empathy, positive support and encouragement regardless of ability.

The benefits of the Men’s Shed project include:

  • mateship and encouragement

  • hands-on activities

  • sharing of experiences

  • learning and development of new skills

The Mossman Men’s Shed attracts a diverse range of men of all abilities and ages, offering a similarly diverse range of projects.

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.
