Hummingbird House, Queensland’s only children’s hospice, will operate as an 8 bed, 24/7 medical facility, providing physician and nursing support and pain and symptom management. Scheduled family breaks and emergency respite care will also feature as key services.

It's wonderful to reflect on how much can happen in just 7 months thanks to the hard work and commitment of so many wonderful people.

Hummingbird House is very pleased to announce that the Brisbane City Council has agreed to our request to maintain our existing property fence line. This will safeguard, at least for the foreseeable future, the outdoor environment for families that will soon access Queensland's only children's hospice.

We are grateful to the Lord Mayor of Brisbane - Graham Quirk and the Brisbane City Council for this decision. We know it will please the thousands of local community members who supported our request to maintain full access to our current property boundary that lies along Curwen Terrace.

We recognise that we now require a Permit to Occupy from State Government to continue to maintain our boundary and are duly following the required process, with the support of the Brisbane City Council.

Thank you to the 3,580 supporters who have signed our petition to the Brisbane City Council. Your voices have been heard.

Despite having a population of 23 million, there are only 2 children’s hospices in Australia; none are in Queensland.

Hummingbird House is about to change that.

Our Mission

To provide world-class respite and end of life care for children with a life-limiting condition and their families, and to help families discover moments and create memories to last a lifetime.

The Hummingbird House Ball

Join us as we warm the House at Hummingbird House's House Warming Gala. To be held in the unique historical Old Paper Store in the Courier Mail, this extraordinary event is one not to be missed. This special evening will be filled with beautiful food, exciting entertainment, live auctions and prizes. This [...]

February 2016 Construction Update

Gone is the bare patch of land that once only signified a dream. Today, Hummingbird House is fast becoming a reality as the walls and roof shape the site into a home. […]

Hummingbird House Brisbane will be the
physical home and the hub of the Hummingbird House community.

Far more than a simple building, it will be a rallying point of hope, support, rest and understanding for Queensland families living with and loving children with life-limiting conditions.
