Montrose set to open Australia’s first all-ability holiday home at the Gold Coast

Local children and young adults with disabilites and their families are set to benefit from a new respite centre due to open on the Gold Coast.

Montrose, one of Queensland’s oldest “profit-for-purpose” charities, has designed a purpose-built unique new “home-away-from-home” Respite Centre which will be built at Labrador

The $3.4 Million building will enable disabled children and young adults to spend time with their mates in a safe, secure and professionally overseen environment with 24/7 care available, while their parents and carers enjoy time out to recharge and fulfill other work and family responsibilities.



This centre will also incorporate a 2-bed family short stay “holiday” respite unit. This unit will enable families or small groups of friends to enjoy peace of mind as well as professional care, whilst they take time out with their families at one of Australia’s favourite beach holiday destinations.

Montrose are still calling for donations so they can create a state-of-the-art centre. To learn more about the project and how you can help, visit
