Royal Flying Doctor Service Base
Australia

The Royal Flying Doctor Service is providing health services over an area of 7,150,000 square kilometres with 53 aircraft from 21 bases attending to an average of 751 patients each day.

A visit to one of the RFDS bases is a Must See for any traveller visiting outback Australia.

The organisation is the realisation of the vision of Rev John Flynn to provide a mantle of safety to pioneers living in remote areas without access to health services.

This panorama is also proof that despite common misperception there are cloudy summer days in outback Australia.

More About Australia

There are no kangaroos in Austria. We're talking about Australia, the world's smallest continent. That being cleared up, let's dive right in! Australia is a sovereign state under the Commonwealth of Nations, which is in turn overseen by Queen Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, Queen of Australia and Her other Realms and Territories, Head of the Commonwealth. The continent was first sighted and charted by the Dutch in 1606. Captain James Cook of Britain came along in the next century to claim it for Britain and name it "New South Wales." Shortly thereafter it was declared to be a penal colony full of nothing but criminals and convicts, giving it the crap reputation you may have heard at your last cocktail party. This rumor ignores 40,000 years of pre-European human history, especially the Aboriginal concept of Dreamtime, an interesting explanation of physical and spiritual reality. The two biggest cities in Australia are Sydney and Melbourne. Sydney is more for business, Melbourne for arts. But that's painting in very broad strokes. Take a whirl around the panoramas to see for yourself! Text by Steve Smith.
