Becoming a Freemason
Freemasons Tasmania warmly welcomes adult men of all ages, races, religions, cultures and backgrounds. We are keen to encourage the next generation of Freemasons who will help take the organisation and its valuable traditions into the future.
We follow a centuries-old tradition that started with the guilds of stonemasons in medieval times and evolved into an influential organisation that welcomed a broader membership in the 1700s in England. Today, Freemasonry is more relevant than ever, giving men support to navigate changing times and become the best they can be.
Freemasonry is an international movement with over six million members worldwide but it works very much within the local community.
In earlier times, Freemasonry was secretive about its operations and that gave rise to all sorts of bizarre rumours and misunderstandings. Today we are much more open about our role in the community and we share information to show we have nothing undesirable to hide.
