The United Ancient Order of Druids (UAOD) was founded in Victoria around 1862.
A meeting was held on the 18 June 1886 at the Caledonian Hotel in Little Ryrie St, Geelong to gauge interest in the formation of a Geelong branch of the Ancient Order of the Druids.
The United Ancient Order of Druids (UAOD) was a benefit society and when a member joined they were able to access medical assistance and medicines.
The Druidic movement became popular and boasted more than 70,000 members at its peak.
