Core values of Freemasons Victoria
The Lodge of the Golden Fleece was pleased to support the performance at City of London Festival 2001 of a work for harpsichord, didgeridoo and Australian bush sounds symbolising the reconciliation of two cultures. This Beauteous Wicked Place, by composer Ron Nagorcka has been recorded as part of The Convict Harpsichordist.
Australian Chamber Choir
The Lodge of the Golden Fleece is pleased to support the Australian Chamber Choir, which has recently returned from a successful tour of Europe. The Australian Chamber Choir offers programs ranging through the entire spectrum of classical music. An emphasis is placed on the Renaissance, J.S.Bach and contemporary Australian music.

The Masonic convention is that brethren should not attempt to make any Masonic contact with another Constitution without having first checked with the Grand Secretary's Office, whether there is any particular point that should be watched. The Masonic convention is that communication between Grand Lodges be conducted through Grand Secretaries.
With the revolution in fast communication systems and the ease and reasonable cost of travelling today, the Masonic world is coming closer and closer together and visitation and the regular exchange of information can only be good for the future of regular Freemasonry in general. There is a growth of irregular Freemasonry with bodies springing up claiming to be Masonic, that do not accept our basic principles. In regular freemasonry, there is the bar on Grand Lodges or brethren, in their Masonic capacities, making public statements on matters of religious, political or social policy.
In regular freemasonry an open volume of the whole English Bible has to be present before we begin, and remain open whilst the lodge work is done. If any candidate wishes to take his obligations on another sacred book he may do so but that must be on, or beside, the open English Bible. It is the constant presence of the open English Bible, which mainly dictates that a lodge is regular and therefore one which you and I may attend elsewhere. If there is no open sacred book on the pedestal of a lodge attend then you should not be there.
The Australian National Flag is Australia’s foremost national symbol and has become an expression of Australian identity and pride. The flag is paraded by our defence forces and displayed around the country at sporting events and by service organisations, schools, community groups and private citizens.
The Australian National Flag was flown for the first time in September 1901 at the Exhibition Building in Melbourne, which was then the seat of the federal government. The Australian National Flag has three elements on a blue background: the Union Jack, the Commonwealth Star and the Southern Cross. The Union Jack acknowledges the history of British settlement. The Commonwealth or Federation star has seven points representing the unity of the six states and the territories of the Commonwealth of Australia.
