Excitement is building for the most highly anticipated Girl Guides NSW, ACT & NT event.

The first Great Guide 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 28th year (counting the two times we went virtual) we will find ourselves at Sydney Taronga Zoo, Dubbo Western Plains Zoo & Alice Springs Desert 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 awesome fun of epic proportions.

Who: Members aged 5+ who are active members of a Unit so that's Pre-Junior Guides (5–7), Junior Guides (7–10), Guides (10–14), Senior Guides (14–17), Unit Leaders (lots of ages, many unknown), and Adult Members and Ongoing Volunteer Helpers.

When: Saturday 26 August 2.30PM – Sunday 27 August 11.30AM 

Where: Alice Springs Desert Park, Alice Springs, NT 
Admission fee: $95 for Youth Members, $55 for Adult Members and Child Safe Child Friendly (CSCF) Screened Non-Member Volunteers!

In Alice Springs, our fundraising efforts will support the marvellous mala! These tiny rock wallabies are native to the breathtaking Red Centre and need our help to thrive. By contributing to the cause, we'll be aiding in the conservation of this incredible species and ensuring a brighter future for the mala population.
