Freemasonry is

Nearly one million people are expected to throng Sydney Harbour foreshores and other areas when Vivid Sydney lights up and entertains the city with its 2014 spectacular of light, music and ideas.

Mention the name 'Waler' to members of Australian Army Cavalry Regiments and it immediately brings to mind stories of the men and horses of the Australian Light Horse and their part in the famous charge which led to the capture of Beersheba in October 1917 during World War I.

Cockatoo Island was off limits for more than 100 years but in recent years has become a place to escape the everyday world and see history once again brought to life.

It is the world’s first urban waterfront campground, available for business and holiday accommodation, space for creative and cultural events and is ready to welcome the visitor to a new chapter in its long and illustrious history.

In July 2013, Mr Ross McIntosh recommended Grand Lodge to visit the Register of War Memorials web site:

This web site contains information and photos of three (3) war memorials at the Balcombe Heights Estate (the former William Thompson Masonic Schools), the WWI Memorial, WWII Memorial and the Commemorative Stone for the 103rd Australian General Hospital.

There are not many people who can claim to have taught a King how to speak!

Australian speech therapist Lionel George Logue became quietly famous in the late 1930s and became much better known when the film ‘The King's Speech’ was recently released starring actor Colin Firth as King George VI and Logue portrayed by Australian Geoffrey Rush.

It is the world's fifth largest river and has a history which involves wildlife, aboriginal lands, cattle and sheep stations and some of Australia's earliest pioneers.

The Murray and Darling River system covers one third of the Australian continent and comes from vast catchment areas in South Australia, Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland. It is responsible for providing water to two-thirds of Australia's irrigation areas.

Loved it or hated it, you can blame or praise the Eastern Suburbs Railway for the demise of the old Sydney Stadium.

It was located at the corner of New South Head Road and Neild Avenue, Rushcutter’s Bay; now the railway line runs elevated across the site.

Centennial Park is one of Sydney’s biggest and most popular playgrounds for people of all ages. It has sports fields, ponds, walking areas and space for barbecues and picnics.

But underneath the grass and the wide spaces lies another world – the fifth oldest reservoir still in operation today as part of Sydney’s water supply system (the first was the Crown Street Reservoir completed in 1859, which is still in use).


In a world often dictated by hate and segregation, membership of an organisation capable of uniting men of all religions, colours and even accents is more relevant than ever.
