Incorporated in March 2012 and moved temporarily to  premises which had been a live Kiwi house.
The Whangarei Men’s Shed has a reputation for ‘thinking outside the square’ and purchased the old Whangarei Railway Station in 2013. 
Not only is the Station a multiple workshop area for the pursuit of an array of pastimes and projects, but it also forms a “Work in Progress” challenge in its own right. The W.M.S. has set itself a target for restoring the interior of the old station (badly deteriorated) with the guidance of an architect employed by the Shed and the National Historic Places Trust.
We undertake other community work too – here is a feature story concerning pest traps.
The railway “Shed” is open on 9:30 to 3:00 Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
