The Tasmanian Men's Shed Association (TMSA) was formed in 2009.

The TMSA provide assistance locally through support, information and auspicing.

The organisation exists only through the efforts of volunteers from various sheds around Tasmania.

The Tasmanian Men's Shed Association committee lobby local and state government for funding on behalf of registered sheds.

We offer a local link to the national body, the Australian Men’s Shed Association.



The Tasmanian Men's Shed Association has the following roles:

  • To represent Men's Sheds to Governments, NGOs, funding sources etc.
  • To publicize and promote the Men's Shed concept.
  • To assist in training, OHS, funding and insurance advice.
  • To maintain communications between Sheds.
  • To provide Start up information documentation for new sheds.
  • To act as a neutral body where overall decisions are required.

Our Strategic Plan is available for you to download and read here.
