About our shed
Tin Can Bay Community and Men's Shed Inc opened in March 2020. Since than we have been able to grow in membership and also scope of items that we create. It has been important that we made high-quality and affordable products since day one.
Facilities and equipment are being constantly upgraded so that members can develop their skills and knowledge. Socially, the Shed is inclusive of both men and women, and values the input from both.
The team at Tin Can Bay Community and Men's Shed Inc knows that every product counts, and strives to make your shopping experience as rewarding and fun as possible. Check out our store, and get in touch with questions or requests.

— "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.
