Our history

Maleny Lodge was founded in 1913 with foundation members from Nambour Lodge, eight locals and one from Woodford. The Lodge was known as ‘Dunlop Lodge’ after its first treasurer. At the consecration ceremony, presiding guest officers travelled by train to Landsborough and then to Maleny by buggy and wagon. After early meetings at the Baptist Church, the Lodge  establish its own temple in Beech St in 1916.

In 1970, the Beech Street Temple was sold to finance a Lodge at Tamarind Street and the Lodge changed its name to Maleny Lodge. In the 1980s the Lodge celebrated the 100th birthday of its foundation member, Wor. Bro. Dinning and congratulated M.W. Bro Walter Burnett on becoming Grand Master of the United Grand Lodge of Queensland.

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.
