What's happening to the Australian Guide Program?



In 2015 Girl Guides Australia asked Guides, leaders and parents from around Australia what they thought of the Guide Program, and what they wanted for the future. Thousands of girls responded and shared their vision for a world of Guiding possibilities and adventure.

You gave us so many great ideas!


And now we are working hard to make your ideas into reality.

Guides and Leaders from all over Australia are:

  • Working to improve badges, making them easier to understand, and giving you more direction on what to do to complete a badge, whether it is your Fire Create a Challenge or your Queen’s Guide Award.
  • Looking at how we can make local Guiding more flexible to help you fit it in with other things in your life such as school and sport, and to make it easier for more girls to get involved. 
  • Developing new and better ways to support leaders so they can work with you to create more ways to have Guiding fun
  • And much, much more….


Building our Future will take some time but together we will keep working on it together because we all want Guiding to have a very special future.
