Welcome to Guides for ages 5 to 18 years

Guides discover, decide, plan, participate and develop their program to suit their Unit with the guidance of an Adult Leader.

Guiding activities vary from week to week and ensure the positive Guiding motto's of "Be Prepared" and 'Guides can do anything.'
Guides offer you a 4 week trial which enables you to participate in all activities and really experience Guiding before making the decision to join. 

  • If you join Girl Guides between 5-17 you will be a youth member and placed into a Unit.
  • Unit meetings usually take place once a week during the Queensland school term for 2 hours within a local hut or community space.
  • Units have opportunities to participate in many activities outside Unit meetings, for example: community events, camping, adventurous activities, social outings with other Units, fundraising and even learn how to save a life.

Girl Guide Recognition System

Guides can earn awards within a Unit program, Unit outings and through their own personal accomplishments.

These awards can include Unit and District recognition as well as badges and certificates for: completing challenges, gaining new skills, fundraising, participation in activities and introducing a friend to Guiding.

Some awards allow Guides to set their own personal challenges, others require certain skill levels to be achieved and some awards are designed to be only achieved within a certain time and/or by a certain age group.
