LISTING DETAILS

The Shed in the backyard has long been a part of Australian Culture. Men’s Sheds have spread rapidly all over Australia. In Queensland alone there are over 200 Men’s Sheds. A Men’s Sheds is a place for men to be socially active and form friendships. It allows new opportunities for activity and interaction in manual crafts such as woodwork metal work and the restoration of objects, machines and furniture. As members of the Coolum Men’s shed we have the opportunity to participate in social activities engage in projects that utilize our skills and experiences. Also we can just come along for a yarn and a cuppa. No manual skills are required. Members are happy to impart their knowledge and skill to all comers.  Our Shed at Quanda Park operates Monday Wednesday and Friday each week. Members participate in Community Projects that benefit a variety of local Groups. For Example over 300 wooden blocks from the Coolum Beach S.S. Prep classes have been sanded and varnished in the past few weeks and there are about 800 more to go! We manufacture bird and possum nesting boxes for the Coolum Coast Care Group. We also do timber repairs and special orders for the general public. Coolum Men’s Shed recently supported the Coolum Theatre Group by providing the Magic Box for their production of Puss ‘n Boots. This has resulted in an ongoing relationship that will benefit both entities in the future. The Mens Shed fills a vital role in the wellbeing of men by providing a place where men can communicate, interact and ponder life’s little problems. In doing so men develop a sense of meaning and value in their life, all of which facilitates a willingness to communicate all too often uncommon in men. Coolum Men’s Shed looks to a future of fostering a communication between other not for profit groups in Coolum, the wider community, and through our affiliation with Australian Men’s Shed Association, a network of Men’s Sheds throughout Australia.

The Coolum Men’s Shed opens 9.00am to 3.00pm Monday Wednesday and Friday.
