Unit-style accommodation at McIlwraith on the Park in Auchenflower, Brisbane
As the only Health Fund based in regional Queensland, we understand that medical services aren’t always available in smaller communities where many of our Members live. This means you may have to travel to Townsville or Brisbane for medical treatment or to go to hospital.
Your treatment may involve an initial appointment to see a specialist and even once your surgery or initial treatment is completed, you may still need follow-up surgery or ongoing visits back to the hospital. Finding accommodation close to the hospital where you're being treated can be an extra hassle that you really don't need through this time.
With this in mind, Queensland Country provides apartments in both Townsville and Brisbane, available exclusively to our Members. These 2-bedroom, self-contained and fully furnished apartments offer comfortable, peaceful accommodation for our Members needing medical treatment.

Please Note: The accommodation benefit available under our Hospital covers is not claimable if you are staying in the Fund’s accommodation units in Brisbane or Townsville.
Make a reservation
Your reservation must be secured at the time of booking by payment in full by credit card and will need to be confirmed by a doctor's letter or documentation supporting your hospital visit/medical appointment at least 48 hours prior to your arrival date by emailing it to [email protected].
Bookings will be treated as reservations until documentation is received from your health professional. A staff member will phone to confirm your booking.
How to book
The Queensland Government offers a Patient Travel Subsidy Scheme (PTSS) that provides direct assistance to patients, and in some cases their carers, to enable them to access specialist medical services from which they are isolated. A subsidy is provided to approved patients and carers to assist in the cost of travel and accommodation to the nearest specialist medical service that is more than 50km from the patient's nearest public hospital.
For more information please visit the Government's Travel Subsidy website.
