The vision of Mosaic Support Services came to life on Tuesday with the opening of a new children's respite centre at Rocherlea.
The first venture for the disability service provider in the state's north, chief executive Lynne Harwood said Mosaic recognised the unmet needs of many families in the region.
"Respite is such an important aspect of disability services, because it serves the family as well as the individual client," she said.
"For us respite is about having fun activities and adventure for the client, and allowing the families to have some chill time."
Catering for up to six clients at a time, the new facility features a sensory garden, chicken coop, barbeque area and modern playground.
Ms Harwood said children would be engaged in a wide range of activities, suited to their individual needs and designed to expand their skills and knowledge.

Mitchell Brown, who lives with multiple intellectual disabilities, was the first client welcomed to the new service on Tuesday.
His mother Stacey Cassidy said the service would help take the pressure off.
"It's a very exciting day for us as a family," she said.
"It is a really good opportunity for us to have another option.
"For Mitch to have a new place he can go to, rather than relying on family and friends all the time."
Ms Harwood said meeting the needs of clients like Mitch was what Mosaic strived to do - to enrich the lives of people living with a disability.
"For us, being able to work with a family and with a client like Mitch is exactly why we're here. It's exactly what we stand for," she said.
"Understanding the idiosyncrasies of what Mitch needs is crucial.
"That's what choice and control it about. All we do is facilitate what the client wants and how we can bring out the best potential."
