  • Great experience of how John Flynn started the royal flying doctor service. Good souvenir shop, there is a movie to watch in the place, there is virtual reality glasses to experience the patient or pilot of the royal flying doctor service. There is also a life size replica of the plane that you can go inside. You have to pay to go in but it's worth it. Overall great experience.
  • Always support this worthy cause by visiting there shops they are a must in remote areas. Please support this very worthy organisation
