The Orange Order was established in Australia in 1845, with the first Lodge meeting in Sydney New South Wales. We are a Protestant Christian fraternity resolved to promoting the ideals of the Protestant faith, while respecting others.
The Grand Lodge of Australia is part of the World Orange family. Grand Lodges are found in New Zealand, Ireland, Scotland, England, Canada, USA and West Africa. Our name derives in honour from King William III, Prince of Orange, His victory over despotic powers and the birth of Constitutional Democracy (as we know it) during his reign, is why we are proud and honoured to bear the Orange name.
