About Us NEWCASTLE, NSW

Ronald McDonald House Newcastle, located in a peaceful bushland setting on the grounds of the John Hunter Children’s Hospital, provides a ‘home away from home’ to families of children receiving hospital treatment for serious and life threatening conditions – whether from disease, injury or a congenital condition. We strive to provide an atmosphere where the familiar routines of home life can continue as much as possible through stressful and difficult times.  

Since opening the doors in 1991, close to 1000 families call us home each year in our 12 comfortably furnished family bedrooms and 6 self contained units. Communal areas of the House are as much about sharing journeys as they are about sharing facilities, with families, staff and volunteers providing a caring and supportive environment. We are grateful for the continued support and goodwill of the wider community that ensures the House continues to make it possible for families to stay together at a time when they need each other the most.

7 Sunshine Coast Marathon

After just three years, the annual 7 Sunshine Coast Marathon has established itself as one of Australia's most loved running festivals. Set on the idyllic Sunshine Coast, this internationally recognised road race is back on Sunday August 30 2015. In addition to being a world-class running event, 100% of event profits go to organisations such as Ronald McDonald House South East Queensland and The Westpac Foundation plus more than 70 worthwhile causes chosen by YOU the runner. Since its inception, the 7 Sunshine Coast Marathon has returned more than $500,000 in funds for charities and local community groups and we hope that this year is the most rewarding one yet - for both runners and charities.
