Ballarat Region Badge (original)
The original Ballarat Region badge was first used in 1975 as the badge for a Region Rally day called Ringball. It was designed by the late Ballarat Division Commissioner Mrs Kathleen Hillman. The badge depicts:
- a poppethead – representing goldmining the region
- wattle – seen throughout the region but particularly in the Maryborough area
- a rams head – representing sheep farming
- an apple – representing the orchards of Bacchus March
These items are enclosed within a trefoil to identify the badge as belong to Girl Guides.
Ballarat Region Centenary Badge
In the Ballarat Region, we have designed our own special badge to celebrate the Centenary of Guiding. The badge contains the symbol of the Ballarat Region, as well as the centenary logo. We also have our traditional Region badges available.

Sebastopol District Badge
Sebastopol District Guides have their very own district badge. The image represents the different aged units in the district and the uniforms that were worn prior to the introduction on the national uniform.
These badges were first used as swaps at the Fantastic Jamboree in 2013.
The Sebastopol District has since become a member of the Ballarat District, but the badges are still available.
