Starlight Express Room and Captain Starlight Programs

Every minute of every day a child is admitted to hospital across Australia.

Uniquely Australian, Captain Starlight and the Starlight Express Rooms were developed to complement the Australian healthcare system in partnership with leading Australian health professionals, and exist nowhere else in the world.

Starlight Express Rooms provide a medical-free respite for sick kids and their families, and Captain Starlights.

While health professionals focus on treating illness, Captain Starlight captures a child’s imagination and turns their pain, fear and stress into joy, fun and laughter.
