Ashmore Men’s Shed (AMS) is a community based organisation focused on improving the health and well-being of members, with a particular focus on men’s mental health.  AMS provides a welcoming and friendly environment which fosters social inclusion within the wider community and helps reduce social withdrawal. It has also created a haven for members to relax from the challenges of everyday living. The members are able to gather for social interaction and to work on meaningful projects at their own pace and in their own time, in the company of other members.

Address is 139 Currumburra Road, Ashmore QLD 4214

Phone: 0481 408 881‬





AMS is becoming increasingly involved in performing charitable activities for the broader community. It supports and promotes the principles of equality, opportunity and access, while recognising diversity. AMS is actively building partnerships with government and non-government agencies and other community groups.

Our Story

Ashmore Men’s Shed (AMS) is one of the newest members of the Australian Men’s Shed Association. It was formed as a result of a public interest meeting held by Southport and Ashmore Rotary Clubs, on 15 July 2017, to gauge interest. The initial meeting was attended by over 70 men and an inaugural committee was elected. Since then it has become a fully incorporated, not-for-profit organisation.


Since inception and, while waiting for the construction of the shed, we have been very active, holding fortnightly members meetings to ensure that members are updated on progress and also able to interact socially. We have taken the opportunity at these meetings to have regular guest speakers including a GP advising on health matters, an ambassador from the R U OK? Group advising on mental health issues, some general interest speakers and, linking the benefits of physical health to mental health, a speaker from the adjacent PCYC gym. Members have also indicated their areas of interest and this has resulted in a shed design that will meet the expectations of the members. Not only will we provide for traditional activities like woodwork and metalwork but also computer and smart device training.


We have also participated in visits to other Men’s Sheds, working at Bunnings Sausage Sizzles, manning the Rotary Children’s Carousel at Broadbeach and many working bees. In the future we will be working with both local schools and the PCYC to provide supervision, advice and mentoring of students participating in projects at the Men’s Shed. Both Ashmore State School and Ashmore PCYC has expressed keen interest in starting this process.


The physical shed has now been constructed through generous donations from the Southport and Ashmore Rotary Clubs and the Gold Coast City Council. As the local community has become aware of AMS, we have received many donations of tools and equipment but significant funds now need to be raised to fit out the shed including electrical, plumbing and internal partitioning, to name a few. The committee and members are very active in fund raising activities and applying for grants but need all the help we can get.
