The Beach House

The Women’s & Children’s Hospital (WCH) Foundation Beach House is South Australia’s first purpose-built holiday home for families with children with complex medical needs or in palliative care.

Located at Encounter Lakes, Victor Harbor, the Beach House is specifically designed, constructed and medically equipped to meet the needs of some of the Hospital’s sickest children.

The Beach House is a very special place for children and their families to relax and create precious memories together.

Why the Beach House is special

The Beach House is truly accessible for families, while being aesthetically beautiful and not feeling like a medical facility.

The Beach House can sleep up to 12 people allowing the child and their parents, siblings and extended family to stay, and is medically equipped for children (newborn to teenagers) in palliative care and/ or with complex medical needs.

Staying at the Beach House

The Beach House program is run by the WCH Foundation in consultation with the Hospital.

Applications to stay at the Beach House are welcomed from families with children currently under the care of the WCH’s Palliative Care or Complex Care Services.

For further information about the Beach House email beachhouse@wchfoundation.org.au or phone 08 8464 7909.
