Great Guide Sleepover - Dubbo, Western Plains Zoo

Great Guide Sleepover - Dubbo, Western Plains Zoo

Registrations has closed!

Get excited for one of the most highly anticipated Girl Guides NSW, ACT & NT events.

The first sleepover was held in 1996 on the steps of the Opera House to raise awareness and funds for homeless communities. Since then, the Sleepover has become an annual tradition, moving locations over the years but always funding a cause for the community. Now in its 27th year we will find ourselves at Sydney Taronga Zoo, Dubbo Western Plains Zoo & Darwin Wildlife Park for an eventful evening of sleeping under the stars, Guiding, animals, movies, dancing and more.

There will be fundraising. There will be prizes. There will be bedrolls.
There will be a film, there will be a dance party. There will be awesome fun of epic proportions.
