Kidsafe Partnership 

Mater Mothers' Hospitals have partnered with Kidsafe Queensland to provide a professional child car restraint fitting service on our South Brisbane campus (within Hancock Street Car Park).

It is estimated that in Brisbane alone, up to 84 per cent of child car restraints are not fitted correctly. Kidsafe provides expertise and advice and installs all brands and types of Australian Standard child car restraints.

The service is currently available between 9 am and 4 pm from Wednesday to Friday (excluding public holidays) and includes child car restraint checking, install and hire.

Bookings can be made online via the Kidsafe Queensland website, which also details applicable fees for each service.

The service is provided on level 1, Hancock Street Car Park. Signage will direct you to reserved parking bays on the ramp which leads toward level 0 of the car park, where the car restraint checking, install and hire is undertaken.

Families who have made a booking via the Kidsafe Queensland website will need to take a ticket and enter Hancock Street Car Park via Raymond Terrace. Tickets can be validated for free exit on completion of the service by attendants within the Car Parks Customer Service Centre, located on level 1, Hancock Street Car Park.

For further information about the service, please contact Kidsafe Queensland.
