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.

For People From Out Of Town

It can be hard if you need to travel a long way from home for medical treatment, especially if you or your child has to stay at or close to the hospital for some time. It can also be very lonely if your family or your partner cannot be with you.

We understand that this can be a stressful time and that staying in a strange city can be a bit overwhelming.

Information about accommodation, transport assistance and support services can be found via the following links:

  • Accommodation please note that it is the responsibility of WCH patients and/or their families to arrange their own accommodation while in Adelaide.

You will also need to eat, shop and spend some time away from the hospital. The pages listed at the left side of this page contain information on facilities in and around the WCH, and on other useful services.
