Entertainment Precinct on level 6 Starlight express room

Starlight Express Room

The Starlight Express Room is a bright, happy place that looks and feels nothing like a hospital. It’s where Captain Starlight and a team of amazing volunteers create a world of fun with games, arts, crafts, singing and dancing.

Whether you’re in hospital for an appointment, a day, or for a longer stay, you can pop in, spend time together and enjoy all the fun and games. Brothers, sisters and whole families are welcome.

In the evening, the Starlight Express Room hosts Livewire, a teen-only chill-out zone where young people can build friendships, feel independent and connect with others who understand what they’re going through.
