Brownie Guides


Where have the Brownies gone?

The Brownies are still here, just not the term Brownies.

All members of Guiding in Australia are now known as Guides.

This name change was made in 1996, along with the introduction of a national uniform and a new Guiding Program.

Historically, Brownies referred to the 7-10 year old age group within Guiding.  This was the name given to them by Baden-Powell, based on characters from the story “The Brownies” by Juliana Horatia Ewing.




Brownie Law: A Brownie Guide thinks of others before herself and does a good turn every day.

Brownie Motto: Lend a hand
