Peak Achievements

We are proud of all the achievements and accomplishments of our Guides, in their Guiding programs, in their school environment, and in their life beyond.

We acknowledge our Ballarat Guides who have worked hard and been awarded for the Peak Achievements of Queens Guide Award and BP Award.

The first Guide in Victoria to achieve the Queen's Guide Award was Helen Adair of the 10th Ballarat Guide Company (Scot's Church), presented by Lady Baden-Powell, our World Chief Guide during her 1947 visit.

We would like to compile a complete list of recipients. Feel free to contact us with details of Guides we have not yet included.

Queens Guide awardees

The Queen’s Guide Award is the peak achievement award for youth members of Girl Guides Australia. It provides an opportunity for personal development, self-awareness and attaining knowledge and and skills.  The Award requires significant determination, initiative, self-motivation, resilience and commitment and is pursued only by a small number of  Guides.

Guides are required to accomplish tasks in leadership, community service (volunteer work), outdoor skills, cultural awareness, working with peers, and to advance their own personal development in areas of their choice in the form of a ‘focus’ and an ‘interest’.
