Herston Village (Brisbane)

Herston village

Following the completion of the Bone Marrow Transplant Unit in 1987, the Leukaemia Foundation through its fundraising efforts was able to construct the first purpose-built patient accommodation and support centre. Herston Village was opened in 1989 at a cost of $1.4 million.

Since then the 13 units have helped more than 1,700 people with blood cancer, giving families free accommodation near the Royal Brisbane and Women’s hospital. In late 2017 long-awaited renovations were finished. These renovations were made possible thanks to incredible support from the community and a $998,400 grant from the Australian Government’s National Stronger Regions Fund.
