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

 Members aged 10+ who are active members of a Guide Unit (not JGs), so that's Guides (10–14), Senior Guides (14–17), Unit Leaders (lots of ages, many unknown), and Adult Members and Ongoing Volunteer Helpers.
