About our shed
Tamborine Mountain Men's Shed is located in the Scenic Rim Regional Council (SRRC) area on beautiful Tamborine Mountain, which has a population of approximately 7,500 residents. The Shed was established in 2010 and after a short stint in the local high school's manual-arts classrooms, in 2011 a lease was entered into with with SRRC. The members built their own Shed on SRRC land. The current 2022 membership is 69.
Our vision is for men of our community to develop friendships and promote their health and well-being by meeting regularly, working together, developing new skills and sharing stories over morning tea.
Woodwork (carpentry, lathe work, ukulele manufacturing), leatherwork and metalwork shop. Very sociable morning tea at 10 o'clock.

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.
