It’s approximately 4 kilometres from Brisbane City and 1.4 kilometres from both the Mater and Princess Alexandra Hospitals.
ESA Village was initially opened in 1994 at the Raymond Terrace site in South Brisbane. This $4 million 21 unit complex was built 100 metres from the Mater Hospital Campus. Due to the development of the Queensland Children’s Hospital, ESA village was relocated and rebuilt, with the assistance of Queensland Health, in Dutton Park in 2012.
ESA Village is named in honour of the ESA International organisation, whose members have tirelessly fundraised and been dedicated to the care of patients and their families – particularly through their involvement with the Princess Quest, later known as the Leukaemia Foundation Quest.
ESA Village is within walking distance to the Park Road train station, and the Boggo Road Busway. Brisbane City is less than 20 minutes away by bus or train.
Courtesy buses and cars are available to transport village residents to local shopping centres to buy groceries, do other general shopping or for a social outing.
