    Accommodation

    Cancer Council accommodation in Adelaide

    Thanks to the generous support of South Australians, especially our fundraisers in regional areas, Cancer Council provides a warm and welcoming environment to guests who need to travel to Adelaide for treatment.

    Travelling far from home can place further stress on people affected by cancer. Our Lodges provide a friendly place to stay, with transport to some treatment centres and support services, to make your stay as comfortable as possible.


    Cancer Council accommodation

    Cancer Council SA has two accommodation facilities in Adelaide for country people affected by cancer and their carers.

    • Cancer Council Lodge—Flinders is located at 27 Dequetteville Terrace, Kent Town and has 66 rooms.

    • Cancer Council Lodge—Greenhill is located at 204 Greenhill Road, Eastwood and has 55 rooms.  


    Priority is given to people undergoing cancer treatment but guests with other medical appointments are welcome to stay.

    Personal or nursing care is not provided so guests who are unwell need to be able to look after themselves or be accompanied by a carer. Cancer Council SA strongly recommends you have a carer with you during your treatment.

    Both facilities are smoke-free to maintain a healthy environment.


    What does it cost?

    Rates per night :

    • Guest with cancer  (1st person) $40.00
    • Carer (2nd person) $40.00
    • Extra person in family room $10.00
    • Different rates apply for interstate, other medical guests and Health Care Card holders. Please contact reception on 13 11 20.


    Financial assistance through PATS

    If you need to come to Adelaide for cancer treatment and live 100 km or more from the city, you may be eligible for assistance through the Patient Assisted Travel Scheme (PATS) towards the cost of your travel and accommodation.

    PATS is a subsidy program funded by The Government of South Australia to assist people travelling more than 100 km each way to receive approved medical services.

    Talk to your doctor or health service about PATS to see if you are eligible for help to cover the cost of travel and accommodation.

    If eligible for PATS cover Cancer Council will invoice PATS directly for the cost of your accommodation so you may not have any additional accommodation costs other than telephone charges, confectionary items purchased from reception and meals from the dining room.
