Since its beginnings in the United Kingdom in 1910, Girl Guides has always been a uniformed organisation. Each member country of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts around the world wears a uniform unique to each country's climate and culture. Here in Australia, we introduced a new uniform soon after our centenary in 2010. This uniform was designed in consultation with the Guiding community to be vibrant, modern, practical, and attractive. It's suitable for all occasions from Promise Ceremonies to going on camp!
Here at the Girl Guides Victoria online shop we have everything you need to kit out the top half of your uniform, as well as hats to keep your head both warm and sun-smart! Any navy bottoms can be worn including skirts and dark blue jeans, and shoes should be closed toed and suitable for the activity.
All units require youth and adult members of Guiding to wear a polo shirt or formal shirt to unit meetings. Additional optional items such as sashes, hoodies, fleeces, and hats are also available.

Youth Members 5-13 Years
Please note that the Blue and Yellow Polo Shirts are being phased out and are no longer sold in the Girl Guides Victoria retail shop. These shirts are can still be worn as uniform until the end of 2018.
Youth Members 14-17 Years
Hats (suitable for Youth and Adult Members)
Bags (suitable for Youth and Adult Members)
This uniform is more fitted than our previous style, and some people have found they like to upsize, especially for outdoor activities. Some items are also more generously sized than others - the hoodie and fleece for instance. We generally recommend that for the polo shirts, choose a size that is two sizes greater than usually worn.
Please note that the charts below are a guide only, and refer to body measurement not garment size.
