Freemasons Ann Street Memorial Centre

Brisbane City, Brisbane Area

With its foundation stone laid on Anzac Day, 25 April, 1928, and built from local materials, the Freemasons Ann Street Memorial Centre is the headquarters of the craft in Queensland and a masonic memorial to those who gave their lives in the World Wars.

The grand hall, featuring original furniture from Queensland timbers - silky oak, maple and cedar, one of the State's largest pipe organs and gold leaf ceilings, is a must see. The library on the ground floor has had many books on freemasonry, some with special historical significance and the museum features a range of artefacts, some of which date from the early days of freemasonry in Queensland.
