The Women's and Children's Hospital is located on the traditional lands for the Kaurna people, and we respect their spiritual relationship with their Country. We also acknowledge that the Kaurna people are the custodians of the Adelaide region, and that their cultural and heritage beliefs are still as important to the living Kaurna people today.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people should be aware that this website may contain images, voices and names of people who have passed away.

Here you'll find information on a range of other facilities and support services at the hospital or in the vicinity.

Play therapy

A number of play therapists are employed at the WCH to help minimise any anxiety, stress or trauma that can be associated with hospitalisation.

Through play, each child is respected, nurtured and supported as an individual with unique needs, personality, preferences, cultural values and capabilities.

Post box

A post box is located near the corner of King William Street and Kermode Street outside the hospital.

The nearest post offices are in Melbourne Street and Tynte Street, North Adelaide.


The Postnatal and Antenatal/Gynaecology wards have laundry facilities for their inpatients only.

‘Do it yourself’ laundry facilities are available in Chapel Street, North Adelaide, and same-day dry cleaning services are available in O’Connell Street, North Adelaide.
