Our shed is an incorporated Association and we have activities at the shed or garden most days of the week.

There are four activities in our shed and you are welcome to participate in any or all of them.

The shed is a place for social contact with like minded people. The morning crib and lunches make the day an enjoyable event.

We also have a wood fired pizza oven that regularly supplies members with lunch.

The Men's Shed
The Men's shed is open Mondays from 9:00am till 2:00pm bring some lunch and Thursdays 9:00am till 2:00 pm. (Please check with Peter Torenbeek before     attending.) For location see

We build bird boxes (parrot breeding), and sell these to help re-establish parrots in the community and prevent Indian or Common Myna birds from stealing parrot nesting places. See the Gallery page for the different types of bird boxes we make.

We have designed and built artists easels. See the Gallery for details

We make "Fiddle Boxes" for Alzheimer's NSW see Gallery for pics and Newsletters & Coming Events for an extract from their magazine.

The shed incorporates both a metalwork shed and a woodwork shed with new and donated equipment etc.
