The Australian Girls’ Amateur Championship was first played in conjunction with the Australian Women’s Amateur Championship qualifying rounds in 1953 at Royal Perth Golf Club and was won by Margaret Masters, claiming victory over 36 holes. The event remained 36 holes until 1975 and 1976 when the championship was played over three rounds of stroke play, while in 1977 it was played over four rounds of stroke play. It returned to a 36 holes format from 1978 to 1983, before a separate championship was introduced in January 1984. From 1984, the championship was played over 36-holes of qualifying with the leading 16 qualifiers contesting match play for the title.
From 1993 the age limit changed from under 21 to under 18, and in 2000 the format changed to 54-holes stroke play. From 2012 it has been played over 72-holes.
