Make your way to Port Douglas for the big event between 6-8 September 2024. Give it your best, and know that wherever you place, you're part of the team making wishes come true for sick kids across the country.

I don’t think people realise how important wishes are for kids. They are going through hell and it gives them a distraction and something to look forward to.
