Cairns Children’s Clinic is a private multidisciplinary centre of excellence providing coordinated paediatric care locally to the children of Cairns.
It is the first such clinic outside of a capital city.
Children and families of all ages, cultures and identities will find themselves welcomed and supported by our approachable and caring team in a
developmentally appropriate environment.
We assist children with all medical, developmental and psychological issues. In addition, we provide seamless collaboration with specialist paediatricians by telehealth and during their provision of outreach clinics in our facility.
Our clinicians work as a team with families to tailor their care to their individual needs. We are committed to supporting families with access
difficulties by undertaking telehealth and home visits for some appointments.
We welcome you to our clinic.
