Lions House Foundation Inc.

Download the Chairman's Update March 2016

The Foundation provides accommodation to Austin Health, which incorporates Austin Hospital, Heidelberg Repatriation Hospital and Royal Talbot Rehabilitation Centre, additionally we also provide the same accommodation service to the Mercy Hospital for Women.


The Aim of Lions House is to provide a place of affordable accommodation for families of patients from rural, interstate and outer metropolitan areas undergoing treatment at Austin Health and the Mercy Hospital for Women.

After many years of fundraising in Victoria, the Board of Directors of Lions House Foundation Inc in conjunction with the Austin Health refurbished a section of the Boronia Centre at the Heidelberg Repatriation Centre. The refurbished Section is known as “Lions House”.

The site has now been completely refurbished and we now have a magnificent 12 bedroom facility which was formally opened by the Governor  of Victoria His Excellency Alex Chernov AC QC on the 23rd February 2014.

Patron: The Hon Sir James Gobbo AC CVO and Lady Gobbo

Brick Pavers

We have now made arrangements to continue the “Brick Paver” program that has been so requested.

Pavers may be purchased for $40.00 each and these will have your name engraved in the paver and they will be laid in the “Margaret Heathorn Courtyard” with the other pavers already donated.

This is a great way to support the Foundation as well as being given the opportunity to acknowledge someone who has supported your Club as individuals or business.


The Lions Club of Heidelberg Warringal who is a major supporter is acknowledged with  block pavers for their contributions.

Please download and complete the application order form and post to the Foundation’s post office box for acknowledgement and processing.

 Applications for this current order of pavers will close on the 30th of June get your order in early.

 We will send you a copy of your paver by email when manufactured.
