Features of Masonic Memorial Centre
Urn of Remembrance
The building is dedicated to Freemasons who gave their lives in World War 1 and the urn is a war memorial used on ANZAC Day.
An incredible space used by Freemasons for their ceremonies. It features furniture created on site made of Queensland timbers, symbolic decor and gold-leaf embellishments. The hall underwent a renovation in the late 1900s.
Choir loft and organ
The magnificent organ is the fifth largest in Queensland and the choir loft caters for 32 choristers
Made in the 1890s, the clock was originally used in the Alice Street Temple, which was the Masonic meeting place until 1930. The wooden housing was carved from a single tree trunk of northern silky oak.
