Welcome to our lodge, Guiding Star

Our Lodge is located in Ballarat Australia and has over 70 members from a wide range of ages, backgrounds and interests.

We are actively involved in our local community and proudly support many local organisations through our charity and fund raising efforts. We also have an active social program involving families of present and past members.

Our Lodge was consecrated on 22 May 1999 following the amalgamation of ‘Hope No. 274’, ‘Orion No. 53’ and ‘Sebastopol No. 63’, three of Ballarat’s oldest Freemasons Lodges with a combined total of over 345 years of masonic history, and is chartered under the United Grand Lodge of Victoria.

Please make sure you look around our website and explore the various links provided which include both Masonic and non-Masonic information of interest.
