Magic at Lingbogol badge

March 25, 2022

MAGIC HAPPENS AT LINGBOGOL badgeThis delightful Lingbogol badge was created as a fundraiser for the Lingbogol Guide Camp in 2022, approximately 70 years after Girl Guides first started enjoying camping experiences at Lingbogol.

The badge was designed by Ballarat District volunteer Guide Leader Julie-Anne Evans (“Opal”) to compliment a magical Central Highlands Region activity she organised and held at Lingbogol.

The event had a magical theme that was extended to include a region camp for older youth members. Approximately 100 girls aged 5+ enjoyed either a day or weekend of activities based on well-known magical characters.

The Lingbogol badges hold particular significance to those who have attend the camping property in Creswick over the years, but will also be of interest to anybody who would love to add the unique badge to their camp blanket.


Magic Happens at Lingbogol badge

The basis of the badge is that all events held at Lingbogol bushland property are magical and create Guiding memories for those who attend.

The badge has been thoughtfully designed to include significant elements:

  • red toadstool – the outdoor ornamental toadstool at Lingbogol traditionally used for Brownie Ring
  • green frog – the endangered growling grassfrogs that live at the campsite
  • glowing campfire – traditional night-time activity held outdoors at Lingbogol or in the Kathleen Hillman Memorial Barbecue pit
  • dragon and unicorn formed from smoke from the fire – simply representing that a magical experience occurs at Lingbogol
