About the House

Ronald McDonald House Randwick gives seriously ill children the best gift of all – their families. 

Our House is a warm and supportive home-away-from-home for families of children travelling to Randwick for treatment at the Sydney Children’s Hospital.   Ronald McDonald House Randwick is committed to providing family-focused care allowing families to stay by their child’s side during their treatment at the Sydney Children’s Hospital. Our communal facilities help to create a social and supportive environment and offer a few of the comforts of home that make life just that little bit easier.

Poppy's Story

Poppy is a little girl with a whole lot of fight.

Poppy’s mum and dad, Casey and Murray, received the devastating news that their six-year-old daughter had Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia on Valentine’s Day in 2018.

Within two hours, Poppy and her mother were on a flight from their home in Glen Innes to travel 450km to see their nearest children’s oncologist in Newcastle.

Poppy’s treatment started immediately.
