Gladstone Men’s Shed Inc. has been established in Gladstone for 10 years now and is affiliated with both the Australian Men’s Shed Association and the Queensland Men’s Shed Association. Our new building at 18 Moura Crs, Barney Point, has been equipped and currently offers activities for metal and wood working and we constantly look for opportunities to conduct other activities.
The shed is open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings from 8am to 12noon for workshop activities. A CovidSafe Plan is in place and whilst we do not expect to exceed the visitors numbers allowed on site, we do ask all visitors to sign in and out, obey all the published rules of our CovidSafe Plan and do not come to the Shed if feeling sick or unwell.
ADDITIONAL DAY IN 2022, the shed is now open for light exercises on Friday mornings 8am to 9am with time for a cuppa afterwards. This has been assisted by a National Shed Development Grant to fund a Gladstone physio.to conduct the classes, so men come along and try it out.

We have just attended another successful Ecofest at the Botanic Gardens and being kept very active in the shed with everything from our Early Childhood Services Project, to using the CNC Router made in-house for helping other community groups and a new job to make survey pegs – all good activities to work shoulder-to-shoulder with men from the Gladstone community. Newsletters have been updated for each AMSA, QMSA and Burpengary – there are always several good stories in there to give us ideas for our shed. Of course new photos always keep getting added to the “Recent Photos” tab, so keep looking for the latest happenings at the Gladstone Men’s Shed. Carbatec have also sent a reminder about discounts available for men’s shed members on their great range of tools, machinery and consumables, see the Management Committee if you want to know more!
