Two Iconic Territory Stories One Iconic Location.

Experience and learn through the wonder of technology as the Royal Flying Doctor Service Darwin Tourist Facility brings history to life

The Royal Flying Doctor Service:

Using the latest innovations in holographic technology, the life size hologram cinema experience tells the story of Rev John Flynn's vision and its realisation into the RFDS of today.

Climb aboard a decommissioned RFDS Pilatus PC-12 aircraft completely aero-medically equipped and learn about the activities of the RFDS's pilots, engineers, doctors, nurses and the experiences of the patients that are carried and cared for each day. 

The Bombing of Darwin Harbour

The second iconic story featured is the Bombing of Darwin on 19th February 1942. The bombing of the harbour brought destruction to the city of Darwin, and many of the stories have been brought to life through our innovative technology. This exciting world-class exhibit features cutting edge technology - a hologram cinema experience telling the story of Etheridge Grant, virtual reality and a projection window of the Japanese air attack on the harbour.

Located on Stokes Hill Wharf near Darwin Waterfront, the RFDS Darwin Tourist Precinct is a must see attraction when visiting Australia's Top End.
