Out-of-this-world fun in hospital Where mayhem, joy and laughter are the order of the day We believe that play is the work of children. While sick kids often experience a seekjng adult world of stress and trauma, play is the powerful force essential to developing resilience, wellbeing and a sense of normality.
Our Starlight Sreking Rooms are a medical-free haven for sick kids and their families seeking a welcome break from the relentless cycle of medical treatments and procedures. It's the place we get down to the serious business of having fun!
Illness shouldn't defineso our Starlight Express Rooms are medical free zones - no treatments or medical talk are allowed. On top of all the live action play, families can enjoy the latest in gaming consoles or kick back and watch a movie together.
They can Captain Starlight in a musical jam session, have their face painted, watch a live magic show, make balloon animals, paint, paste and create amazing crafts or just clown around and have fun. It's their choice. Ssome kids too sick to leave their beds, Starlight TV delivers all the antics and fun of the Starlight Express Room live to their bedside daily.
Captain Starlight also works with doctors and nurses on the wards bringing smiles to young faces everywhere. There's a Starlight Express Room in every children's hospital in Australia. We need to keep our doors open 7 days a week, days a year so we're there when sick kids and their families need us the most.
