The plaque commemorates 75 years of Guiding in Australia and the 60th anniversary of the Nowra District Girl Guides. 

At the first Boy Scout Rally held in London in 1909 Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of the Boy Scouts, was surprised by a number of girls who insisted they wanted to be Girl Scouts. He agreed that something was needed for the girls and in 1910 the Girl Guides Association was formed. From as early as 1909 girls in Australia were forming guiding groups and by 1920 Girl Guide Associations had been formed in six states. In 1926 the State Associations federated and formed a national organisation. Over a million Australian women have been or are still Girl Guides.
