Get to Know Girl Guides

There are many activities outside of school available for girls—Girl Guides offers girls aged five to 17 something unique: access to a great variety of activities throughout the year. We help girls develop their skills in a safe environment while having fun and finding friends!

Simply, we empower girls and young women to discover their potential as leaders of their world. We like to think of it as changing the world, one Girl Guide at a time.

The Guide Promise and Guide Law form the principles of Guiding

The Guide Promise and Law is the fundamental principle of Guiding.
Exploring the principles expressed in the Promise and Law encourage Guides to develop their own values system, a responsibility for their own actions and an understanding of self.

For adults involved in Guiding in Australia, there is also a code of conduct  that all adult members, staff and ongoing volunteers must adhere to.
