The Memorial Centre was originally erected as a memorial to Freemasons who fell in the Great War 1914-1918. The foundation stone of the centre was laid in 1928 and the centre was opened in 1930. The Urn of Remembrance which is located in the vestibule of the centre was unveiled on the 9th December 1930 by the Governor of Queensland. The Centre also commemorates the fallen of World War Two.

The foundation stone of the temple was laid by the Grand Master, Brother O Stumm on the 25th April 1928 in the presence of a large and distinguished gathering of Masons. The ceremony marked a very important anniversary in Queensland as on the 25th April 1904 the United Grand Lodge was formed by the union of existing lodges. The temple is also a memorial to the Anzacs who fell in the Great War.
