Building STEPS Pathways College

Based in Caloundra on the Sunshine Coast, STEPS Pathways College provides students with a pathway towards independence and the opportunity to achieve their life goals.

Construction of STEPS Pathways College began in April 2016 and it’s one of the most exciting developments in STEPS Group Australia’s 30 year history.

Opened in May 2017, the college provides young people with a disability the opportunity to learn practical day-to day living skills and experience independent-living while residing on campus in purpose-built apartments.

Major Sponsors BA Murphy Constructions and Murphy Homes

Ben Murphy, of BA Murphy Constructions, and his sister Brooke Bastien and Father Leigh Murphy, of Murphy Homes, donated a significant amount of time and resources to build STEPS Pathways College.

“STEPS Charity cannot thank Murphy Homes and the generosity of local contractors and suppliers enough. Murphy Homes have been instrumental in moving the project forward and we would be nowhere near starting if it wasn’t for their expertise and support in making it a reality,” Carmel Crouch, Managing Director STEPS Group Australia


STEPS Pathways College has been developed entirely from funds donated by the local community. We can truly say it’s “the College the Coast built”.

“Whether it’s disability, injury or illness, there’s not one person who hasn’t been affected by it. What you and I can do and what people with disabilities can do are at times worlds apart, so we say make a difference when you can – your life’s not that bad,”

Ben Murphy, General Manager Murphy Homes.
