"Royal Flying Doctor Service" Charleville Things to Do Tip by cafank
Charleville Things to Do: 20 reviews and 45 photos
It's well worth a visit to the Royal Flying Doctor Service Base in Charleville.
Charleville Base commenced operations in 1943 and still works as a lifesaving facility today - probably even more so as health services in outback communities have been slowly decreasing.
The services provided from the base include medical chests, remote consultations, aeromedical retrievals and primary health care clinics. Serving about 622,000 square kilometres of southwest Queensland - an area almost the size of the United Kingdom - it is one large operation.
At the base you can see a short film "A day in the life of a Flying Doctor" and wander through the museum with its collection of historical and modern memorabilia.
Entry is free but donation appreciated
