Rest. Play.

Live. Thrive.

The Apex Foundation manages funds for three amazing facilities that provide respite accommodation for the families of sick and underprivileged children. The Chalet, the Shack, and the Copper Coast Retreats are all available for holiday bookings, so that families doing it tough have a chance to relax and make wonderful memories.

These retreats stand proud as symbols of our commitment to helping Aussie kids and keeping the legacy of the International Year of the Child (1979) alive.

The Chalet

Our Chalet is a magical 24-bed retreat intended for rest and play, just a stone’s throw away from Mt Kosciuszko. We welcome underprivileged, disadvantaged, chronically ill, and disabled children, together with their families and carers.


Nestled snugly into the heart of beautiful Shoalhaven Heads on the NSW south coast, you’ll find what we lovingly refer to as The SHACK, a gorgeous complex of holiday units for chronically ill or underprivileged kids and their carers.

Copper Coast Retreats

A cancer diagnosis has a huge effect on not just the patient, but their families and loved ones. If your family is dealing with the stress that comes with cancer, you can find yourself a little bit of paradise in our stunning Copper Coast Retreat.

Situated in the Wallaroo North Beach Tourist Park in South Australia, just a two hour drive from Adelaide, these three fully furnished units are available for a seven-day stay — free of charge.
