The Real Builders of Ballarat: A Masonic Tour of the Ballarat CBD

Access info

Freemasons were on the Goldfields from the very beginning and quickly became a contributing force in the fledging city of Ballarat by establishing many public works such as hospitals, libraries, schools and churches. Shrouded in secrecy, these builders have left many clues and symbols throughout the historic quarter of Ballarat.

For the first time, join one of Ballarat’s active Worshipful Masters on an enlightening walking tour as you learn about some of the achievements this mysterious fraternity has contributed to the City of Gold.

Across Victoria’s Midwest, we acknowledge that we travel across the ancient landscapes of many First Peoples communities.

These lands have been nurtured and cared for over tens of thousands of years and we respect the work of Traditional Custodians for their ongoing care and protection.

We recognise the past injustices against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in this country. As our knowledge grows, we hope that we can learn from their resilience and creativity that has guided them for over 60,000 years.

As we invite people to visit and explore Victoria’s Midwest, we ask that alongside us, you also grow to respect the stories, living culture and connection to Country of the Ancestors and Elders of our First Peoples.
