About the Huonville Men’s Shed

The HMS was established in Huonville Tasmania, in response to a perceived need for this type of organisation in the area in 2016. The founding committee took the view that the incorporated association should not discriminate based on gender, and would be open to all men and women over the age of 16. At the time of writing this, women represented just over 10% of the members.

We are a registered charity with The Australian Charities and Not-For-Profits Commission (ACNC) and are recognised as a Health Promotion Charity. Please click here for our details. We are qualified by the Australian Taxation Office as a Deductible Gift Recipient.
