Yurana Cancer Kids Holiday Homes is an independent local charity based on the beautiful South Coast of NSW in Ulladulla. We offer free holidays to families dealing with the serious illness of a child, such as cancer or cystic fibrosis. We recognise the stress of this time affects the whole family, which is why our holidays offer something for the family unit.
We offer seriously ill kids and their families a free holiday in one of our four modern homes. Each home has a games room and is equipped with modern appliances, including air-conditioning. All of our holiday homes have fully fenced backyards and a cubby house.
We are located in the seaside town of Ulladulla, just 3 hours drive from Sydney or Canberra. Each home is within 2 kms of a shopping centre, beautiful beaches and a bowling, golf or service club.
Why holiday with us? Yurana Homes is not a political, religious or commercial organisation. Our accommodation is provided absolutely free of charge to eligible families. The South Coast of NSW is a great family place for a holiday with fresh clean air, fabulous surf and a friendly community. There is a lot to do when you want to and little to do when you need to. We feel sure you will have a relaxing time here.
Why do we do it? Our committee and members are all local volunteers, mainly retired. It gives us great personal satisfaction to be able to make a difference for families who are undergoing a very stressful period of their lives.
Are you eligible for a free holiday? All we require to book your first holiday is a referral from your doctor, appropriate health professional or social worker. This can be in the form of a letter, email or phone call to our office. Our contact details are shown on the left of the page or click here to send us a message. Alternatively, you can fill in our online booking form and we will be in touch with you.
