Men's sheds


Men's sheds provide a safe and friendly environment where men are able to work on meaningful projects at their own pace and in their own time while enjoying great company. For many men, it’s also a place for socialising, providing the opportunity to chat with other men and develop friendship networks.

Activities at the Surf Coast Shire Men's sheds range from hands-on building of community projects and managing community gardens to social activities including BBQ lunches and singing. Promoting wellbeing and health among male community members is one of the key objectives of Men's sheds. The sheds welcome men of all ages, nationalities and abilities.
