Will you fly us to the moon and back?

We can’t make it without you!

Every year, the RFDS fleet flies around 28 million kilometres to deliver essential medical care across Australia. That’s the equivalent of 34 trips to the moon and back!

You can help ensure we can continue to be there for Queenslanders in the most remote corners of our state, when they need us most.

Thank you for showing your support for the Royal Flying Doctor Service.

As Australia’s most trusted charity, we rely on kind-hearted people like you to keep us flying.

Your contribution makes a real difference in the lives of people who live, work and travel in remote regions across Australia. With your help, we can continue to provide the finest medical care, day and night, to the furthest corners of our country.

We’re so thankful to have a team of caring people like you behind us.

With your support, no one is too far away for us to reach

We know Australia is a big country, but do you know exacly how big? At 7.69 million square kilometres, it’s the sixth largest country in the world! From east to west, it’s close to 4,000 kilometres wide.

It’s no wonder then, that our RFDS fleet flies around 28 million kilometres a year as it brings medical care to every corner of our vast country.

Distance can create a host of challenges for Aussies living, working or travelling a long way from our cities, especially when they need access to health services. That’s why it’s so important that no matter where they are, Aussies can count on the Flying Doctor.

Your donation today will help us fly to the moon and back for our regional, rural and remote communities.
