What to Wish for
Wishes come in many shapes and sizes, they’re as diverse as a child’s imagination and we’ll do our utmost to make it happen.
Wishes fall into one of four categories:
To meet… a favourite rock star, actor, sporting hero
To be… a policeman, zoo keeper, published author
To have… a computer, dirt bike, shopping spree
To go… on a family holiday in Australia or overseas
Wishes to go to the Gold Coast and Disneyland (age restrictions apply) or to have a new computer are popular, but we receive some unusual requests as well – to meet an armadillo, for instance, or to drive the world’s fastest train.
Eligible children under the age of three may receive a Wish box, a selection of age-appropriate toys. If the child is still medically eligible after their third birthday, they are able to apply for a Wish at that time.

Please note: To go Wishes are a wonderful family experience. Travel is for 7-nights at the destination. International Travel Wishes are for travel to one country only.
It isn’t always possible to grant the child’s original Wish. This can be due to a number of factors – for example, the child may not be medically fit to undertake their Wish, or a requested celebrity may not be available to meet the child. In these cases an alternative Wish will be sought.
