ANZAC DAY MARCH
ANZAC Day is Australia's most important national occasion. It is a day of national remembrance. A day when the lives of those who died in all military actions are remembered.
Each year our region marches in the Townsville Anzac Day Parade. We would like to see as many girls as possible participate in this year’s parade. Our participation acknowledges the sacrifices made by our defence forces and illustrates our involvement in the community.

TIME: 8.45am to form up at 9.00am. Parade commences at 9.30am.
Service commences at 11.00am.
WEAR: Uniform polo & sash, navy or black bottoms, closed in shoes & socks,
Guide or navy hat & sunscreen
WATER: There is always water available at the end of the march but if you need to bring water please bring a bottle that is small enough for you to carry.

Clean Up Australia Day at Bluewater, March 3rd 2013 saw approximately 65 Guides and parents help mow and clean the campsite. With their help we mowed, trimmed trees, chain-sawed dead trees, dug out tree stumps, filled holes, whipper snipped, planted a few plants, pressure cleaned buildings, cleaned walls and windows, chairs and tables, cupboards and floors, erected signs and outdoor seating, painted, tidied and sorted equipment.
At the end of the day the campsite looked fantastic. Many hands do make light work.
20 Girl Guides from Wulguru, Southern Townsville and Aitkenvale and their leaders attended the recent International Jamboree in Tasmania, along with 1700 Guides from Australia and around the world. A FanTAStic time was had, with activities to suit all interests - from rockclimbing and hang gliding to craft and digital photography. Heat, high winds, rain, bushfires and snow did not defeat us!
