Ronald McDonald House Charities ACT & South East NSW

Ronald McDonald House Canberra gives seriously ill children the best gift of all – their families. Our warm and supportive home-away-from-home provides the whole family with a comfortable place to stay and peace of mind, knowing they can stay together in the Centenary Hospital for Women and Children.


Ronald McDonald House Canberra is uniquely located inside the Centenary Hospital for Women and Children. Our aim is to take some of the stress out of being away from home during a long and difficult journey and provide a supportive environment in the company of other families going through similar experiences.
Keeping the family together can be extremely tough without support, which is why we offer accommodation for parents with seriously ill children who need to travel to the Centenary Hospital for Women and Children. Our House also supports mothers going through high risk pregnancies.


Ronald McDonald House understands that being away from home for long periods of time can put families under financial pressure. That’s why our accommodation is free for eligible families of seriously ill children.
