About us

Our mission is to empower girls and young women to grow into confident, self-respecting, responsible community members. We provide a unique, girl-only environment, vital for personal and social development.

Guides is a fantastic, unique organisation that develops leadership skills and life skills in young girls, teenage girls and young women.

Our exciting programs are developed by the Guides in each group, enabling them to experience the thrill of conquering new challenges!

Leadership & teamwork

Leadership & teamwork

Guides work in small teams, known as Patrols, each with its own elected leader. As Guides move through the age groups, they take on bigger challenges. From traditional Guide activities like camping and knot-tying, to adventurous activities like rock-climbing and skiing, our Guides are always trying something new!

 What happened to "Brownies"?

What happened to "Brownies"?

Since 1996, all members of Girl Guides Australia have been known as Guides. Don't worry though, we still offer great quality programs for all girls, from aged 5 to 18 and beyond into adulthood!

We have active Guide Units (groups) for all ages in Bardon, Jindalee, Kenmore, Middle Park, Moggill, Oxley, Sherwood, St Lucia and Walton Bridge/The Gap.

What do we do?

Scroll over the images to see some of the things we do at our weekly meetings. This year our Guides also have been whale watching in Hervey Bay, skiing in Jindabyne (NSW) and helped with turtle conservation in Bundaberg!
Having fun with friends is a key part of our meetings, it boosts our confidence and gives us a sense of belonging!
With a diverse range of challenge badges to work towards, our programs are always varied. There's something for everyone!
Guide Camp allows us to gain independence. There’s not much better than sitting around a campfire with our friends, after a fun-filled day!

We know we're amazing, but you don't have to take our word for it...
