“Iconic Australian service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

We really did not know what to expect when we called in at this attraction but decided to include it in our list of places to visit due to the reviews on Tripadvisor. While the facility is small in scale this was more than made up for by the enthusiasm of the two volunteers that greeted us and guided us through the Centre. The video they showed us of some of the real people that have been helped by the service really helped my teenage son understand the critical importance of the work that is done. We were lucky in that while we were there a plane landed from Sydney with a patient being transferred back to Dubbo. Seeing my son in the Centre the pilot invited him on to the plane to have a look around. I gather from the volunteers that this is a rare treat so we really were exceptionally lucky. Now my son plans to be a pilot!

“Wonderful experience /informative”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

A visit to the RFDS will leave you in awe of the amazing service the doctors, nurses and airline staff do for the people of rural Australia. Helping the chronically ill, accident victims, delivering babies and filling teeth are a few of the services these wonderful professionals do each and every day. This service will continue whilst many generous donors help to provide the enormous funding required to provide such an essential and unique service. Thank you to the lovely ladies who volunteer to help spread the message by opening the museum and showing a very informative film on the RFDS.
