Kippilaw, in Leura in the Blue Mountains, was established as a Junior Red Cross Home for girls in 1945. Kippilaw received girls from Juong Junior Red Cross Home and Shuna Red Cross Home in 1945 and 1946. Kippilaw closed in 1950 and the children were transferred to Berida.

Kippilaw was a Red Cross convalescent home before it closed in 1945 and became a Junior Red Cross Home. Juong Junior Red Cross Home was closed after Kippilaw was opened.

Blue Mountains historian Shirley Evans has told Find & Connect that little is known about this home, but that the property was once owned by Goldsbrough Mort.
