Reed House is Wishlist’s emergency accommodation facility. This facility is available to patients, carers and immediate family members whilst their loved one is undergoing treatment at Nambour, Selangor, Caloundra and the Sunshine Coast University Hospital.

We are currently seeking volunteers to assist with various tasks which include; housekeeping, reception & customer service, administration, gardening and driving.

No experience is required and training will be provided.

We can offer you a rewarding role, gaining new skills whilst meeting new people within a friendly organisation which values the contribution our volunteers make to our team.

Wishlist Coffee House - Gympie & Nambour










'Sew' good to us

The Nambour Hospital's volunteers, the Sunshiners, at a Wishlist thank you function to acknowledge their fantastic efforts.


Wishlist is looking for volunteers for our two Wishlist Coffee House locations at Gympie Hospital and Nambour Hospital.

Our cafes provides tasty, healthy snacks and meal options for staff, patients and visitors, and generates revenue for the hospital's needs.

We need volunteers to help us run the cafes and be the smiling faces behind the counter, helping with all aspects where needed.

If you would like to volunteer at Wishlist Coffee House, please email us or phone 5202 1777.




Thanks to the beautiful ladies from around the Coast who volunteer hours of their time to knit, sew and create the loveable trauma teddies, blankets, newborn baby beanies/booties, pyjamas, arm slings etc. for the emergency, surgery and children’s wards.

Their work helps make a child's hospital stay that little bit less traumatic.

Find out how you can use your creative skills to help local patients in hospital.





A big thank you to the Sunshiners, Nambour Hospital’s volunteer team.

They are the friendly faces at the hospital reception helping in any way they can from directing people around the hospital corridors to distributing trauma teddies to the wards.

If you have an interest in becoming a Sunshiner at Nambour Hospital, please contact Volunteer Sunshine Coast for info.
