If you visit Alice Springs to see world-famous Uluru, you will also be able to learn all about one of the most famous aid agencies in the world.

There is a visitor centre at the Flying Doctors’ home base, where you can find out more about their rich history, as well as the many challenges they face.

There are interactive tours and a flight simulator, in which you can experience what it’s like to have to land somewhere in the desert in an emergency. It’s more harrowing than you’d expect.
