Royal Flying Doctor Service Alice Springs Tourist Facility

Galleries, Museums and Collections

See, experience and learn through the wonder of technology as history is brought to life. Enjoy heroic tales of the birth and growth of the RFDS.

Visit the original Alice Springs working base that commenced operating in 1939. Learn about the importance of the RFDS to outback Australians, and the medical care required to service isolated regions.

John Flynn the hologram is an amazing experience. The pioneering holographic show forms the centrepiece of the facility, as Flynn tells the story of his vision and its realisation into the RFDS of today.

Step inside a replica RFDS aircraft and feel what it’s like to be a patient at 15,000 feet.

Walk through the museum and meet Alf Treager and Nurse Kathy through interactive technology.

Relax in the air-conditioned café and art gallery, housed in one of Alice Springs’ finest heritage buildings, where you can enjoy lunch, morning and afternoon tea.

Purchase official merchandise along with our latest co-branded range from RM Williams from the Doc Shop, and help keep the RFDS flying.

The last tour commences at 4pm.
