As a Girl
As a Guide you are a member of an organisation with over 10 million members and you can become involved in a wide range of exciting activities, from outdoor challenges and camping, learning new skills, to community action projects and international travel. But there’s more to being a Guide than just having a good time. Guiding provides opportunities for you.
As a Young Woman
The Olave Program is for members of Guiding in Australia aged 18-30, and focuses on the three aspects of community, adventure and self-development. Olaves take opportunities to: Make a positive difference in their communities through volunteering, service and advocacy, Challenge themselves through new experiences especially in the outdoors and internationally and Develop skills and knowledge to enable them to grow as individuals.
As a Volunteer

What do the Minister for the Status of Women, Kate Ellis, comedian Wendy Harmer and Australian food guru Margaret Fulton have in common? You probably already know that one is working to improve the lives of Australian women; one knows how to make your stomach hurt with laughter and one can cook a mean soufflé.
Trefoil Guild is the adult section of Guiding which links members and former members; female members of the Scout Association and women who have not been Guides but who are prepared to make the Guide Promise. Women can join from 18 years onwards! The purpose of a Trefoil Guild is: to keep alive the spirit of the Guide Promise and Law, to carry this spirit into the community and to give support to Guiding.
Girl Guides Australia are always looking for women of all ages to be part of Australia's leading movement for girls and young women.
