Many retired men have had to downsize their living arrangements, often resulting in the loss of personal space, usually the garden shed or workshop. So, the idea of a Community Shed was born. Here, men can come, work with a fantastic variety of tools and spend time with other men with similar interests.

The North Sydney Men’s Shed has been set up to provide a substitute space for “shedless blokes", but it encourages new social activity and some friendships along the way - the shed provides a link to local activities.

Never used power tools? No problem: skilled members will show you how. So, whether you are an expert timber craftsman or a complete novice you will be welcome!

The North Sydney Men’s Shed is a place for

  • retired men to be social and pursue hobbies, pastimes and interests
  • the learning of new skills and the honing of old ones
  • using wood-working machinery and hand tools
  • being part of a community. 


Donations of tools or materials are always welcome and very much appreciated. If you have something to donate please call the Shed Coordinator, Ted Day, 0416 671 585.

Membership numbers

Membership numbers are maintained by shed management at a level considered to be optimally safe under WHS Guidelines. Admission of new applicants will be based upon the working space available to members at the time.
