All inclusive mini breaks for families of seriously ill kids and bereaved families

Maya’s Rest offers mini breaks to families of children with illnesses that require regular or extended visits to hospital and also for children who are receiving palliative care. We also offer time away for families who are grieving the loss of a child. An all inclusive holiday for each family, so they can spend quality time together having fun and forgetting about hospital for a while. Bereaved families may prefer to use the time to  rest and recharge, so they can gather the strength needed to continue on without their child by their side.

This family based respite is offered free of charge and includes accommodation, meals and optional activities, in hope that each family can spend time together without the worry that daily routine tasks demand. We hope that family members will use the time to relax and recharge, so they can continue on as strong as possible with their extremely difficult journeys.

Maya’s Rest is set on 12 acres, at the top of a hill in country New South Wales, a few minutes from Yass and 45 minutes to Canberra. With peaceful views over the playground and valley below, it’s the perfect place for a few relaxing days away.
