The Stanley Lodge has been serving the community of Brisbane since it was consecrated 9th August 1882.  the original Warrant number 680 was issued by the Grand Lodge of Scotland.  A rich and vibrant history we are more than happy to share with prospective members.

As a Freemason, you will:

  • Join both the oldest and the largest fraternity in the world.
  • Join a brotherhood of over 6,000,000 men from all races, religions and countries from all walks of life.

Why are so many men joining the Freemasons?

  • Freemasonry is a voluntary, fraternal organisation, composed of men of good will, good character and good reputation, whom it most jurisdictions around the world, believe in an Almighty Creator and practice the spirit of universal brotherhood to man.
  • They are loyal to their country and devote their time to the principles of friendship and fellowship.  Their focus is to be of service to all mankind.
  • For many men, Freemasonry fulfils a part of themselves that they intrinsically felt was missing.  Whether it be the social, the philosophical, the spiritual, the historical or simply a sense of community with others; you will find within Freemasonry that part of you which you seek.

If I become a Freemason, what is their Mission?

Freemasons help to build a better world through a unique and worthy process of building better men to live in it.  The Freemason Motto is:  "Better men make a better world."

What principles will I learn?

You will learn to practice brotherly love for all, charitable relief for those who may be in need, morality and good citizenship in every community.

What type of fraternal society is Freemasonry?

Freemasonry acts as a charitable, fraternal, educational, social and character-building society.

Masonic Fraternity:

Masonry's active ideal is the brotherhood of man under the Fatherhood of God.

Masonic Education:

Freemasonry supports public education and teaches its own members morality and brotherhood by means of ceremonies and symbols.


The Masonic Fraternity furnishes opportunity and inducement for men to gather for group enjoyment and personal development.

Character Building:

  • All Masonic activities stress the values of personal integrity and personal responsibility.
  • Each member is encouraged to make efforts to improve his community in the interest of human welfare, inspire the members with feelings of charity and good will for all mankind as well as move them to translate these learned principles and convictions into individual action.
