Freemasonry philosophy

Freemasonry opens the door to men of good character from all walks of life and from diverse religions. You’ll always find a friendly welcome – we’re ordinary men developing our potential, supporting each other and working for good in the community. Learn more

Character of our Lodge

We work a ceremonial ritual that is Scottish in origin and are proud of our heritage in Scottish Freemasonry. Perhaps it is these origins that give the Lodge its relaxed, convivial atmosphere, its informality (outside of ceremonial work) and its disregard for pompous authority and senseless bureaucracy. 

Lodge events

In addition to Lodge meetings we believe in involving families and friends in activities that range from get-togethers after meetings to fundraising for worthwhile causes.

Our history

In early 1913, a series of public meetings of Scottish Freemasonry was held in Brisbane to discuss the establishment of a new lodge.  A petition was then sent to the Grand Lodge of Scotland, and Lodge Tullibardine was formally established at the Masonic Hall in Wickham Street, Fortitude Valley on 28 June 1913. The name was chosen by the petitioners as the Grand Master Mason of Scotland In 1913 was the Marquess of Tullibardine, who granted the Lodge permission to wear the Tullibardine tartan. This we have done with pride ever since. 

Along with most other Scottish lodges operating in Queensland, Tullibardine transferred its allegiance from the Grand Lodge of Scotland to the Queensland Grand Lodge in 1920 and was amalgamated into the United Grand Lodge of Antient, Free and Accepted Masons of Queensland (UGLQ) as Lodge No 227 in July 1922.

After having used the Valley Masonic Temple until 1982, Tullibardine established its own permanent home at Stones Corner Masonic Centre where it continues to meet. A number of commemorative events were held for the Lodge’s centenary in 2013.

Freemasons are a diverse group of men from all walks of life, from many religions and many backgrounds. Becoming a Freemason is a commitment to develop your own potential, to values that see all humankind as equal, and to helping others in our community.
