Cairns Men's Shed is a community group for men in the Cairns area. Our clubrooms are like the shed you wish you had in your back yard, but we cater for all kinds of people and have a huge range of facilities to suit.
Our goal is to keep men happy and stop them from sinking into loneliness or depression. We do this by encouraging men to work side-by-side and talk with each other.
Any male aged between 18 and up may join. You don't have to be a practical person because we have a range of social activities, computers and a model railway.
Monday to Friday 08:00 – 12:00
Saturdays 08:00 – 12:00
You may stay later on Saturdays but the use of all powered machinery must be stopped at 12:00 – in respect of our neighbours.
As a matter of course we are closed every Sunday, Christmas Day, Good Friday nd Anzac Day however this may be altered at the discretion of the Management Committee. The closing time may be altered on the day as all members are volunteers BUT in any circumstance there must be two persons at the shed at any one time.
