About our shed
and the services we can offer. Our Shed also serves as a place to trade excess tools or materials for something another shed or local individual has and to provide a place for discussion of problems relating to Sheds and in particular projects where local knowledge is not available. Perhaps a place to share a joke or plans for a coffee table, car ramps or health tips etc.
We want to let others know that we have a good supply of dried - slabbed timber of various species for sale as well as items produced by the men. We also have a variety of tools that have been donated and are surplus to our needs, so come in and grab a bargain.
If you are at a bit of a loose end come and see us and perhaps you might want to be a member. There is no pressure to do work and you can do your own projects and get assistance is you want. We do ask you compensate the shed if you use materials and a contribution towards power and maintenance.

— “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.
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.
