Can Assist


Lilier Lodge

A home away from home for patients undergoing cancer treatment in Wagga Wagga.

A Can Assist and Cancer Council NSW accommodation centre, built with the support of the local community. This accommodation centre acknowledges the specific needs of cancer patients and their carers while they are undergoing cancer treatment at the Riverina Cancer Care Centre (RCCC).

Lilier Lodge is a home away from home for patients and their carers. Set in Edward Street Wagga Wagga, the Lodge is close to the RCCC, the Wagga Wagga Base Hospital and the Calvary Hospital and is a short drive to the shops.

The distinctive Lilier Lodge has 20 double rooms and offers comfort and serenity, plus support during a very stressful period. The Lodge also provides a drop-in service for cancer patients who travel daily for their treatment and would like a cup of tea in our lounge while they wait for their transport home.

Lilier Lodge offers self catering, home-style bed and breakfast accommodation. It is a self care accommodation facility and patients can stay at Lilier Lodge provided their condition is assessed by their doctor as being suitable for Lodge accommodation.

Guests looking for affordable, friendly accommodation for business or leisure can also join us at Lilier Lodge. See below for further information.
