Hazelwood and Churchill (Victoria, Australia) local Girl Guide information noticeboard.

Australia Day Jan 26th

Australia Day celebrated as a State Event in Melbourne. This event has the Guides carrying a large Australian Flag. For this, the day is primarily aimed at the BP’s, Queens Guide’s and OBPs presented the previous year. When in Melbourne for the Australia Day event make sure that you have eaten well before the ceremonies begin. After which there is a Parade down Elizabeth Street.

As a Hazelwood and Churchill combined event the places have altered when necessary.  They have been behind the Hazelwood and Churchill shopping Center, Churchill Saloon, at Gaskin Park and at the Churchill Public Hall entrance. This event is open to all aged Guiding personal and members. On Australia Day the Gipps Guides or Leaders have been asked to face paint as an activity while people eat and catch up with friends. Other times there have been odd jobs like the handing out of flags, song sheets, readings, hoisting the flag / colour party [with Scouts].

Sometimes we go into Morwell’s Kurnot Hall for the Australia Day Ceremonies and Presentations/ Citizen of the Year Awards.

Full Uniform is worn. Take drink bottles full of water and sun hats.

Churchill Lions make sure there is a full breakfast available.
