The District

HISTORY OF THE DISTRICT

The District Grand Lodge of North Queensland was originally formed as a Scottish District Grand Lodge on 7 May 1904, based in Charters Towers. The move to form the District came from St. John Davenport Lodge, which was under the jurisdiction of the United Grand Lodge of Scotland at the time. St John Davenport could therefore be considered the Mother Lodge of the District.  It formally closed in 1922 after the formation of the United Grand Lodge of Queensland in 1921.

WHY DO THE DISTRICTS EXIST?

The United Grand Lodge of Queensland (UGLQ) adopted the use of District Grand Lodges to assist in the administration of such a geographically large state. There are two District Grand Lodges in Queensland: North Queensland and Carpentaria. District Grand Lodge (NQ) begins in Proserpine, running north to Ingham and out west to Mount Isa. Carpentaria covers from north of Cardwell and out to the Gulf of Carpentaria region.

DISTRICT GRANDMASTERS

There have been 36 District Grandmasters since 1921. The first was Most Worshipful Brother W.H. Green, who went on to become Grand Master of Queensland. Green led UGLQ for seventeen of its first 25 years as Grandmaster or Pro Grandmaster. The current District Grand Master, Right Worshipful Brother Ian Barrett, was installed as District Grandmaster in May 2013.
