Thanks to the excellent Honour Board of ACT Junior Chess, I have found Australian Girls Championships in several age groups.
It is missing Girls U/18 for 1961, 62 and 63. Interesting to note that 1964, 65 and 66 were all won by Rosalind Jones from NSW! Maybe she won from 1961 onwards? Any clues?

I am slowly putting together a spreadsheet of Australian Junior Champs in all types and age groups, 1st 2nd and 3rd with schools. Thanks to all those who have sent me details of their placings or those they know of. Don't forget schools attended. Will be followed by Australian Schools Teams events eventually.

Don't you mean the old AusJCL site here (https://australianjuniorchess.org/honour-board/).

No Girls Championship was held in 1961, 1962 or 1963 according to CJS Purdy in Chess World.
