Who we are

Hummingbird House is Queensland’s only children’s hospice, and one of only three children’s hospices in Australia. We provide specialised paediatric palliative care services to babies, children and young people with a life-limiting condition, helping them make every moment precious when life is short. Hummingbird House supports families right across Queensland and strives to provide true choice about when, where and how they receive our care. Families can choose to access our services at our purpose-built home away from home in Brisbane, or in their home or community.

Since 2016, Hummingbird House has welcomed hundreds of families from right across Queensland into our warm embrace. Our vision is to be here for every eligible family that needs us, and ensure they are connected to a community that knows how to care for them; in life, death and bereavement.

Hummingbird House is a joint initiative of Hummingbird House Foundation and Wesley Mission Queensland. We are funded by the Queensland Government and generosity and support of the Queensland community.
