Men’s Sheds are community spaces where men can socialise through a range of activities.

Whether it's working on a community or personal project, Men's Sheds offer the opportunity for men to get together and learn from each other.

The 4 Men's Sheds in Boroondara primarily offer woodworking, but some also run other activities.

If you're interested in setting up a Men's Shed, see start a Men's Shed or contact Council.
