Girl Guides Australia is celebrating its centenary from September 2009 to February 2011.

Girl Guides evolved from the Scouting movement, founded by Robert Baden-Powell, in the early years of the 20th century. Baden-Powell's sister Agnes took charge of Girl Guiding in its early years and was followed by Baden-Powell's wife, Olave.

In Australia, Guiding began as early as 1909, but it wasn't until 1926 the Federal Council of the Girl Guides Associations of Australia was formed. In 1928 Australia became a foundation member of the newly formed World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts.
