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.
The shed is also open for light exercises on Friday mornings 8am to 9am with time for a cuppa afterwards.

Now well into 2023 and the shed continues to grow in all facets whether it be new members, new initiatives or the projects that keep rolling in the door. Currently we are gathering expressions of interest for more industry tours following the success of the tour of Gemco railway workshops and as members previously expressed interest in a harbour cruise, we now want to determine what type of cruise (yes, there are choices) and how much you would like to pay (yes, there is always a cost). We also need to determine the final numbers of who would like to repeat the music and dinner show out at Calliope in March.
Some new newsletters from other sheds and associations have been added to the “Newsletters” tab, there is always some good reading and some good ideas in there. We have also continued to have a few visitors from our community supporters, you are always welcome to chat to them as those conversations reinforce what a great place the shed is for men to socialise.
We do have a few on the sick list at the moment and a few recovering with the great help of our medical professionals, so check on your mate as asking “are you OK” is a mighty powerful tool. On the health side of the shed, it is great to see some new faces at the Friday exercises, it is something for nothing and is certainly good for you. We are now talking to the nutritionists about doing some demonstration for members, watch this space for more developments. Don’t forget to keep looking at our “Recent Photos” tab, we do try to add some interesting shots of members and the shed activities.
