The AMSA was established in 2007 by the Australian independent community-based Men’s Sheds to represent, support and promote the Men’s Shed movement. It was founded on the principle of sharing information between sheds and those communities wishing to establish and operate a Men’s Shed. It acts as a central hub for information exchange.

There are more than 6500 historic shipwrecks that lie beyond Australia’s shores. Each has a unique story and an important place in our heritage. These encompass convict transports, clipper ships, colonial trading vessels, steamships, harbour craft and much more.It is important to pass on the maritime history of Australia with the next generations.
Heritage Railways: The Australian heritage and preserved Railways listings from state to state from west to east around Australia, some of which can also be considered tourist railways. For convenience, heritage tramways have also been included.
Miniature Railways: A listing Australia and NZL Clubs. The list may well have some anomalies but is as up to date as possible… mostly kept up-to-date from information supplied in club newsletters… Some clubs are listed as “No public running”, however, most welcome visiting model engineers. The protocol is to contact the club first and arrange a mutual time for your visit. Members of clubs with AALS insurance are reminded that they should inform their home club of their intention to visit other clubs.
Model Railway Clubs:The Australian Model Railway Association Incorporated is usually called AMRA. Our members have an interest in model railways of all shapes and sizes. The aim of the association is to foster interest in the hobby. Provide advice and help, and fixed layouts on which to run your trains. AMRA has State branches in Sydney and Melbourne.
