Soak up Darwin's aviation history beginning with a tour of the Royal Flying Doctor Service Facility, affectionately known throughout Australia as the RFDS. For over 80 years, the RFDS has evacuated patients from Central Australia and the Kimberley region to Royal Darwin Hospital. Learn the story and activities of the RFDS's pilots, engineers, doctors and nurses, and patients that are carried and cared for each day. Take a self-guided tour and see sights such as a decommissioned RFDS Pilatus PC 12 aircraft (step inside for a look at a fully aero-medically equipped plane). With 19 aircraft including a B52 bomber, 21 engines and a rare amateur footage of Darwin's first air-raid, the Darwin Aviation Museum is an ideal destination to learn the city's role in World War II. Witness a massive B-52 bomber, the only one of its kind displayed in the Southern Hemisphere, military aircraft and other relics.

Special Notes:

The tour includes general admission fee to both museums. It does not include admission to special exhibits in either museums.
Wear warm-weather clothing and comfortable walking shoes. Bring a hat, sunglasses and adequate sun protection.
