The Eastland Ruahine District is comprised of fourteen Lodges:

The Woburn Lodge No 25, Waipukurau
The Rawhiti Lodge No 66, Dannevirke
The Heretaunga Lodge No 73, Hastings
Abercorn-Tuahine Lodge No 76, Gisborne

Lodge Te Mata No 298, Hastings
Hawke's Bay Research Lodge No 305, Hastings
Lodge Frimley No 359, Taradale
The Hawke's Bay Daytime Lodge No 453, Taradale

The Lodges stretch from Gisborne in the north, through 330km or 4 hours of often hilly, twisty driving to Dannevirke in the south; and meet in eight separate buildings. While each Lodge has its own individual strength of fellowship and community, they all face their own peculiar set of challenges for the future. The foremost challenge of each Lodge being to Initiate new men into Freemasonry, who share our values and ideals, which is imperative to growing Freemasonry in the District.
