Full description
The Royal Flying Doctor Service Darwin Tourist Facility provides an insight into the history of the Royal Flying Doctor Service and the Bombing of Darwin Harbour. This exciting development at Stokes Hill Wharf brings to life 2 quintessential Australian stories. The 1st story is the Royal Flying Doctor Service, affectionately known throughout Australia as the RFDS. Founded by the Reverend John Flynn, it began its aeromedical operations in the Northern Territory in 1939. The 2nd story featured is the Bombing of Darwin Harbour on 19th February 1942. The bombing of the harbor brought destruction to the city of Darwin. Many of the experiences and stories of what happened that day are told through state of the art technology.

Take a self-guided tour of the exhibition, knowing that the staff members are always available to assist as required. When you arrive, a staff member will provide an outline of the facility, explain the timings for the holographic cinema sessions and the Window of the 1942 bombing platform. Enjoy a range of interactive and VR experiences that bring history to life. Learn about the heroes and survivors who experienced the raids. Admire a decommissioned RFDS Pilatus PC-12 that allows visitors to experience a fully equipped aeromedical plane.
