Travel and Accommodation

Media-Brisbane-Street

You only have to venture 30 minutes from Brisbane to discover Queensland’s time-honoured heritage region, packed with surprising new adventures.

It’s where historic homes meet culinary cool. Where the open road leads to beautiful countryside, dotted with unexpected delights. Where you can float high above the rolling hills and ranges, or chopper in for lunch at a hatted restaurant. Where museums mark the time and vineyards ramble from vale to vale.

The pioneering spirit remains alive in Ipswich, bringing a new wave of creativity to this beautiful heritage city. Craft breweries let off steam in languid laneways, cheek by jowl with eclectic cafés. Art galleries invite you in for a breath of fresh air. Sculptured gardens amble through serene spaces and sprawling parks play host to the restless and the restful.

There’s a feeling in the air here, that every turn will uncover a new curiosity – and all you have to do is to be here in the moment. You’ll find diversion in diversity, with trails and tracks for motorheads and mountaineers, train lovers and theatre-goers, aviators and acrobats, ecologists and mixologists. It’s a place where you’re more than likely to encounter extraordinary experiences you were never expecting.

Discover why it’s never felt so young, and why you’ll feel it too.

Ronald McDonald House South East Queensland (RMH SEQ) is the largest chapter in Australia. RMH SEQ provides essential accommodation and support services for seriously ill or injured children and their families who live more than 50km from the treating hospital in Brisbane or on the Gold Coast. We cater for families who live in remote and rural areas and are required to travel to Brisbane or the Gold Coast for treatment. RMH SEQ operates three Ronald McDonald Houses which help to preserve the family unit in the midst of physical, emotional and financial stress. It also gives parents the chance to draw hope and comfort from other families in similar situations, while being supported by dedicated and friendly staff and volunteers.

RMH SEQ allows families to be by their children’s side during treatment, whilst also providing a comfortable place for a good night’s sleep and a hearty meal to help families through their toughest times. Every night at RMH SEQ, up to 130 families can stay at one of our houses.

We also offer families’ access to the Ronald McDonald Learning Program which helps children with serious illness catch up on their missed education following lengthy hospital stays and absence from school.

In order to continue providing essential accommodation and support services to seriously ill children and their families, we depend upon the valued support received from our corporate, community and individual partners who generously donate funds, goods or services to our organisation. Through our various fundraising activities you can also assist the families utilising our vital services.
