At Tea Tree Gully Lodge Nº 218 we welcomed adult men of all ages, colours and cultures as equals in our organisation.
Despite many misapprehensions, we are not a religion, a cult or a conspiracy. Nor do we have any sinister motives or practices.
Our values are non-denominational, ethical and based on deep respect for every human being.
