About Us



This program is governed by the Parkville Chapter.

Ronald McDonald House, Parkville, is dedicated to providing a ‘home away from home’ for families with a seriously ill child undergoing specialist paediatric medical and surgical care at the Royal Children’s Hospital, Melbourne. Our Parkville House was established in 1986 and is one of the largest Ronald McDonald Houses operating in Australia.

As of the end of June 2016, since opening its doors, the Parkville House has provided a ‘home away from home’ for 655,603 nightly guests. Our families come from all areas of regional Victoria, interstate and occasionally overseas. Some families stay with us for just a night, others can be with us for much longer.

It is a place for families to be together, with all the comforts of home during a difficult and stressful time. The main service we offer at the House is accommodation, but families can also enjoy recreational activities, family dinner nights, access to the Ronald McDonald Learning Program, respite through the Ronald McDonald Family Retreats and Ronald McDonald Family Rooms at Wodonga Hospital, Northern Hospital and Sunshine Hospital.

Located close to the Royal Children’s Hospital Melbourne, the House is situated at 22 Gatehouse Street, Parkville. Its close vicinity to the Hospital means families can have a break from the hospital during the day, yet are only across the road if they are required back on the Hospital ward.

El Camino for the Kids

As part of El Camino for the Kids, you will join a group of inspiring individuals dedicated to supporting the Ronald McDonald Houses in Victoria provide a home-away-from-home for seriously ill children and their families. From Sarria to Santiago, you will trek under the shade of old oak trees into peaceful hamlets set against the rolling green backdrop of Galicia. At night, you will experience Spain’s colourful culture and cuisine. On what other adventure can you follow in the footsteps of the Romans, the Knights Templar, pilgrims and modern day adventurers to Santiago de Compostela? Best of all, every step you take helps raise vital funds for the Ronald McDonald Houses at Monash and Parkville to provide basic essentials to families caring for seriously ill children: somewhere safe and affordable to stay, close to their sick child.
