Auricht House in Elizabeth North was opened in 2005 as a respite centre for children with intellectual disabilities. Run by Centacare, it accommodated up to ten children. The House was named after mountain climber, Mark Auricht who attempted to climb Mt Everest in 2001 to raise funds for a new respite service. Auricht died during the climb and Centacare named the House in his honour. Auricht House appears to be operating in 2018.
