We learnt so much on this tour of the Dubbo facility. Both the kids and adults loved it. You have the opportunity to see inside a decommissioned aircraft (the kids got to 'pilot'). Worth a visit if passing through.

Must do!!! Visiting the centre was so informative for our kids and ourselves. The video and the plane simulator was just so interactive we all learnt a lot about this amazing service to rural outback. Definitely recommend anyone visiting Dubbo to visit.
