The need
Many retired men have had to downsize their living arrangements, often resulting in the man's personal space, usually the garden shed or workshop, being lost.

So, the idea of a community shed was born
Here, men can come and share a fantastic variety of tools and spend time with other men of similar interests - learning new skills for the first time (or keeping old skills honed and productive).

The North Sydney Men's Shed...
has been set up to provide a substitute space for "shed-less blokes". Beside encouraging new social activities and friendships, the Men's Shed provides a network into local activities.


  • Member's personal projects
  • Designing and making toys for sale and donation to hospitals, refuges and toy libraries
  • Repairing old toys
  • Designing / making / repairing items of furniture
  • One-off projects for local community needs
  • Designing and making craft items for sale and donation

All are welcome!
Whether you are an expert timber craftsman or a complete novice, you will be welcome at the North Sydney Men's Shed. Never used power tools? No problem! Skilled members will show you how!
