Fun from Coast to Coast
What's been happening in the Starlight Express Room
Starlight Express Rooms are the most fun places in hospital filled with play, laughter and distraction. Take a look at what's been happening in Starlight Express Rooms across the country.
New South Wales
Sydney has some pretty magical places, but 5-year-old Zoe picked the best one for her Starlight Wish when she asked for a Unicorn Party in the Starlight Express Room at Randwick! Zoe has to be in hospital a lot for treatment for a serious heart condition, but thankfully she has the fun of Captain Starlight & Starlight Express Room to brighten her day. On her fairytale wish, Zoe flew in a plane for the first time, had a giant unicorn cake & was made an honorary Captain Cadet with her twin sister by her side!
Imagine if you could turn the Starlight Express Room into anything you wanted to. We asked some Starlight kids over in Perth Children's Hospital what they would do and then we made it happen! These were the incredible results...
The Adelaide Starlight Express Room took gaming to the next level when they hosted CometCon. They had lego build-offs, pinball machines, cosplay competitions and holographic displays!
At Monash Children's Hospital, Super Mario brought big smiles to the kids' faces in the Starlight Express Room. There were games galore and Mario even made an appearance on Starlight TV and visited children throughout the hospital wards. It was a super hero day of unforgettable fun!
We whipped out the lab coats for Science Month in our Brisbane Starlight Express Room. Captain Starlight and the kids slimed it up, mingled with Rubik's Cube solving robots and even saw some liquid-nitrogen magic!
In Alice Spring Hospital our Starlight Connection Space celebrated its first anniversary. To celebrate the occasion there was a barbeque, cake and even some special reptile visitors to entertain the kids during their hospital stay. Kids flocked from across the hospital with Captain Starlight to get up close to their favourite native animals.
