Nicely set out insight into the history of RFDS. Starts with a video of their work and then followed by a guided tour of the various historical maps, charts and medicines. Outside is a part fuselage to allow you to experience the cramped space which both the medics and patients endure. The talks are given by volunteers who are so... More

The RFDS as it is know is the saviour of the bush. It has saved countless lives and helped many outback inhabitants and travelers. This exhibition.explains the history and the running of the operation. Don'y leave Dubbo without paying this place a visit. It is free but a donation is most welcome.

Watching where the planes were in real time was interesting. Its incredible to realise the distance they travel and understand how vital it is. We will all look at a... More

The volunteer staff that work there are hugely passionate about what they do and are very informative. I didn't realise how much fund raising is done by the volunteers to keep supplying the RFDS with such wonderful equipment....they do a great job and should be supported. Definitely worth a visit....you never know when you'll need their help.
