The opportunity to learn more about the proud history and incredible services offered by the Royal Flying Doctor Service is available again with the doors at the Visitor Experience Centre at Dubbo and Outback Heritage Centre at Broken Hill reopened.

Both centres were closed to comply with COVID Health Orders between August and October 2021 but they are back open for business and a great place to visit during the school holidays or whenever you next find yourself in Broken Hill and Dubbo. 

RFDS South Eastern Section Head of Tourism John Larkin said it was great to be able to welcome people through the doors again. 

“The Visitor Experience Centres are important for us as they fund our operations while allowing us to showcase the important work we do,” Mr Larkin said.

“The COVID shutdown was necessary but less than ideal for us. It’s great that we have been able to open in time for summer and are looking forward to educating people on the work of the Flying Doctor.” 

The Dubbo Visitor Experience offers the chance to hear stories from our team and those who have been rescued and get an insight into what it’s like to be in one of our planes. The Outback Trek Café is also a great place to come for breakfast, lunch, or coffee and a treat during the day. 

At the Broken Hill Outback Heritage Centre you can tour the base, view our historic aeromedical fleet at the aircraft hangar and explore the Mantle of Safety Museum. 

All proceeds from admission and merchandise sales allow us to continue servicing our rural and remote communities.
