The service the RFDS provide to remote residents and travellers to these areas is just outstanding. In Australia we are so fortunate to have this medical facility.

Very quiet on the day we were there so we had a private tour. We visited 9 years ago, what an incredible service these wonderful people provide. Worth the entrance fee and more to help with their wonderful work.

They dont charge but it is a good thought to give a donation. We gave $10 and bought a lot of goodies from the shop for gifts. They have a new plane and they allow you to see right inside. Hubby went into the cockpit.
