ANZMRC Coming Events

Linford Lodge of Research (Canberra) and Discovery Lodge of Research (Sydney) are members of the Australian and New Zealand Masonic Research Council (ANZMRC), which meets once every two years, in rotation among the various jurisdictions of Australia and in New Zealand. The biennial general meeting is held in conjunction with a conference, lasting several days and featuring Kellerman Lectures and other events.

Start planning your trip to the 2024 ANZMRC Conference
Sydney 17-19 October 2024.

It’s ON and the time draws closer, so if you are joining us from overseas, interstate or not living in Sydney, now might be a good time to book your ticket and/or accommodation to get a better deal.

The conference will be held at the New South Wales Masonic Club / Castlereagh Boutique Hotel, 169 Castlereagh Street, Sydney from Thursday afternoon 17 October and concluding with a gala dinner on Saturday evening 19 October in the beautifully presented Cello’s dining room.

We will have 2½ days of interesting (we hope) papers presented on a variety of topics and a fantastic opportunity for fraternal bonding and chats with like-minded masons.
