The House The Coast Built 



Together with Ausmar Homes, 92.7 Mix FM Give Me 5 For Kids and help of our local community, we have built a home away for families and carers while their loved ones undergo treatment, surgery or emergency stays at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital (SCUH).








More than 130 local businesses and supporters have pitched in to make this important project a reality. 

Both Wishlist and Ausmar Homes are so very grateful for your overwhelming support and couldn’t be more proud to be part of the amazing Sunshine Coast community.

Together with Ausmar Homes, we've built a legacy that will help thousands of people from remote and rural locations across Queensland as well as Coast locals.

The Journey

         Throughout 2018 the local community have shown their ongoing support for this exciting project during the 92.7 Mix FM's Give Me 5 For Kids campaign, the Wishlist Spring Carnival and Sunshine Toyota Exclusive 300 Club Melbourne Cup Luncheon.
  In 2019 we secured land within walking distance of the Sunshine Coast University Hospital (SCUH).
  Building started at the block - 11 Affinity Place, Birtinya.
  The slab was been poured.
  We reached another milestone - the lock up!
  More than 60 businesses have pitched in so far to make this important project a reality.
  In 2020 the home was made wheelchair friendly.
  The tally goes up to OVER 120 local businesses pitching in to finish the project!
  Furniture purchased, moved in and house is cleaned ready for...

The Virtual House Warming Party took place on Friday 1 May 2020.

  Families from remote and rural locations, as well as Sunshine Coast locals, now have a home away from home within walking distance to the Sunshine Coast University Hospital (SCUH).

Previous Years

With the help of the Sunshine Coast community we have successfully built and sold three incredible houses in previous years. The funds raised from these projects allowed us to build the Cancer Centre at Nambour Hospital and fund other vital health initiatives.

In 2003 the award winning The House the Coast Built rallied the Coast community like never before, raising almost $400,000 for Wishlist and enabling them to start work on the long awaited Sunshine Coast Cancer Centre at Nambour Hospital.

Then in 2012, Ausmar Group built Wishlist House raising much needed funds to grow a better local service for Coast families needing eye surgery.

In 2015, the third The House the Coast Built was constructed over a 16 week period with the help of over 60 local contractors donating their time, skills and resources. This project raised more than $300,000 for paediatric needs right here on the Coast, including the Fabio The Frog project.
