Royal Flying Doctor Outback Heritage Experience - Broken Hill


Go behind the scenes and discover what it takes to save lives in the outback at the Royal Flying Doctor Outback Heritage Experience. Located in the Bruce Langford Visitors’ Centre – in a working Royal Flying Doctor Service base next to Broken Hill airport – the experience offers the opportunity to learn about the heroic history and current-day operations of a service that has been coming to the aid of remote-living Australians since 1928.

Today there are 23 Royal Flying Doctor bases across the nation. Here at Broken Hill, doctors, nurses, engineers and pilots work with three Beechcraft King aircraft and are on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Discover stories from the service’s past in an interactive museum, and see the operation control room in real-life action, as the flying doctors deliver urgent care across this vast continent. The Broken Hill base alone covers 640,000 square kilometres of outback.

Please Note the visitor experience is CLOSED from 25 Dec 23 to 2 Jan 24 and closed on Public Holidays.
