The basics

While you won’t want your tour of the Australian Outback to require the services of the RFDS, their Central Operations and visitors center in Alice Springs is well worth a visit to learn all about the incredible history of the RFDS and how it has shaped life in the outback. There is an interactive museum where you can find out what it is like inside the planes, you can even fly one in the flight simulator. Experience life in the early days of the service and try your hand at the Traegar pedal-powered radio which was the primary means of communication for many years. The museum features on some half-day sightseeing tours of Alice Springs.
