Captain Starlight 

Travelling from Planet Starlight

Captain Starlight’s sole purpose is to bring smiles to sick children by distracting them from their illness and pain using entertainment and engagement.

In the eyes of a child, Captain Starlight is a magical super hero, bringing laughter, games, magic and all kinds of fun activities into their lives. Captain Starlight helps children forget they are chronically unwell.

The team of Starlight Captains work their magic across numerous Starlight programs.

Captain Starlight entertains in the Starlight Express Rooms in seven major paediatric hospitals around Australia including the Sydney Children's Hospital in Randwick, the John Hunter Children's Hospital in Newcastle and the Mater Children's Hospital in Brisbane. Captain Starlight also has a presence in the Northern Territory.

“Tyson often had bedside visits from Captain Starlight, which allowed a welcomed distraction with a magic trick or a joke. Visits full of laughter, such a precious thing to hear when your child is in pain.”
Mum of Tyson, an 8-year-old child with Cystic Fibrosis
