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 large building at 18 Moura Crs, Barney Point, has been equipped and currently offers activities for metal and wood working and we have expanded into computer assisted activities with our CNC Router and Laser Engraver.

The shed is open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings from 8am to 12noon for workshop activities.  Last day for 2022 will be 15th December and shed activities will resume on Tuesday 17th January 2023

The shed is also open for light exercises on Friday mornings 8am to 9am with time for a cuppa afterwards.  Exercises will finish for 2022 on 2nd December and resume on 3rd February 2023.
