Connections, community, fun and friendship

The Australian Girl Guide Jamboree brought together Girl Guides and adults from around Australia for a 7-day camp at stunning Victoria Park, to experience connections to country, community and each other. Guides participated in a range of daily activities culminating in a dance party, campfire and bush dancing. The event was designed to foster personal development, lifelong friendships and special memories for all involved.
