I’ve arrived at Perth Children’s Hospital. How can I get to Telethon Kids Institute?

You will see our Concierge desk on the left as you enter the building. They will assist you in meeting your contact person and accessing our facility on Level 6 and 7 of the building.
Will you still run open days for families?
Thanks to generous support from Lotterywest, we will be opening our new Discovery Centre in late 2018.
Located on the ground floor of the building, the Telethon Kids Discovery Centre will be a fun and engaging educational space that teaches kids about science and health research, while also giving families a behind-the-scenes look at the types of research undertaken at Telethon Kids.
