About our shed
We are a group that can be found just five minutes from the beach on the beautiful Central Coast of New South Wales. Here we are fortunate to be able to use the facilities of the Terrigal Uniting Church at:
380 Terrigal Drive
Terrigal NSW 2260
Currently, we open on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, from 8:00am until around 12:30pm.
We are a Not-For-Profit group that is self-supporting through our own efforts. However, we do accept donations of tools, materials and money that allows us to replace, maintain and upgrade our existing tools.
Our activities at the Shed include both personal projects and work for the community – again, donations helping us defray our costs. Working on these projects allows us to practise our wood-working and metal-working skills. If you don’t have any of these skills, there’s no finer place than the Terrigal Community Men’s Shed to learn them from skilled professionals.
However, if you want to just come along just for a cup of tea and a chat, we quite enjoy that too!

— "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.
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.
