About our shed

About Us

Warradale Men’s Shed was officially opened on 30 March 2012 by Jai Rowell, former Member for Wollondilly. The members had previously met in the Warragamba Town Hall, by courtesy of Wollondilly Council. The Shed received government grants and were assisted by the Warragamba Silverdale Neighbourhood Centre. The members had been offered the old Thirlmere Rural Fire Service Shed and had to dismantle and store it for about 12 months. Warragamba Workers Club generously offered to the Shed the present site and the land was remediated, slab laid and re-erected on its present site.

Over the years, the original members have aged, and some have unfortunately passed away. Their contributions to the community have been massive and their workmanship and assistance valued.

Positive impacts


"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.

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.
