Noon Join us for tea, coffee and biscuits - the only place in Toogoolawah where there is more BS than the the cattle sales yards - but ours does not smell the same, and most of the worlds problems are discussed over tea and coffee. We even discuss men's health issues that is what we are all about.

We do odd jobs for the community ( big or small) We make things like flower pots,Bird boxes,Chairs of all sorts,outdoor tables plaque engraving and the like.Now that we have shifted into our new home ( Workshop ) at the top end of Bellambi Street in Toogoolawah,we are hoping to take on new projects that will fill in our days and bring happiness to others.

Positive impacts

Camaraderie

"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.

Community

“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.
