Royal Flying Doctor Service
Since 1928 the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) has provided 24-hour emergency medical services to those who live, work and travel throughout Australia. Discover what it’s like to be inside one of the aircrafts and check out a replica fuselage of a Pilatus PC12. There is a large display of historic medical equipment and a range of model airplanes used by the RFDS through the decades.
Visitors to the award-winning RFDS Alice Springs Tourist Facility will see a life-size hologram of John Flynn describing his vision for the RFDS, accompanied by realistic and lifelike imagery. Relax in the RFDS Cafe, located within one of the finest heritage buildings in Alice Springs. Built in 1939, it was home to the first RFDS radio operator for the Alice Springs Base.
The Royal Flying Doctor Service is a non-profit organisation, with 100% of all profits made from tours and from their online store going straight to the replenishment of aircraft and medical equipment.
