Fighting against the odds in the heart of Australia

Graphic: Nikiha and family

I want to take you on a journey deep into the heart of Australia.

A place where the familiar sound of a twin-engine aircraft sends nine-year-old Fletcher, running out into the garden shouting…

“Mum, mum, it’s the Flying Doctor!”


Because if Fletcher hadn’t heard those twin engines the day his mum’s waters broke 15 weeks early – everything would be different for this family right now.

We all know how hard people have always worked in Australia’s rural heartland. Their resilience and determination makes life in Australia possible for everyone else. But they rely on the Flying Doctor.
