How to join Freemasonry

Freemasonry is a rewarding experience and membership is open to all men aged 18 years or over. Like many membership organisations, there are certain prerequisites that potential members must satisfy when applying to be a Freemason. 

Approach a Freemason you know

If you know a Freemason, approach him and inform him of your desire to join. After discussing your intentions, he would probably become your ‘nominator’ and make arrangements for you to become a member of his Lodge (Masonic meeting group).


Contact this Lodge

If you do not know a Freemason, then please contact this Lodge.


To become a Freemason a person needs to:

1. Be a Law abiding person;
2. Have a belief in a Supreme Being; and
3. Have made his decision to join Freemasonry by his own free will and not for any personal gain or reasons of idle curiosity.

As Freemasonry offers many unique benefits, these prerequisites ensure that those who join get the most out of becoming a Freemason.

If you satisfy these requirements and are interested in joining Freemasonry, there are two ways in which you can apply to become a Freemason.

Expectations of Members

Having joined Freemasonry there are several criteria that are to be respected by members.

As Freemasons come from all walks of life, members are expected to interact with each other free from religious or racial prejudice.

Freemasonry is neither a religion, nor is it intended to be a substitute for religion. Its philosophy is designed to encourage its members toward self improvement.

Members are encouraged to support Masonic Charities which perform valuable services throughout NSW and the ACT.

A Freemason is required to pay annual membership fees.   A joining fee is also charged.
