The RFDS has created an Outback Survival Guide – a free resource to help you better prepare for your next trip out bush, should you find yourself in a survival situation or needing to assist someone else.

As we move into peak tourism season, more and more intrepid travellers are leaving home to explore the great interior of Australia.

With all the distinct hazard and survival challenges the outback presents, the RFDS wants you to be prepared in an emergency.

Covering a range of scenarios, from snake bites to dehydration, the RFDS Outback Survival Guide will give you the added confidence you need to explore our beautiful but unpredictable country.

Every day, the Royal Flying Doctor Service assists 100 patients throughout South Australia and the Northern Territory alone, be it an aeromedical evacuation, a GP and Community Health Nurse clinic, a telehealth call, a mental health or oral health clinic, or a child's immunisation.

None of us want to call upon the Flying Doctor. But when faced with a medical emergency, you can take comfort in knowing that RFDS crews are there when you need them.
