Alice Springs Visitor Centre
The Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) Visitor Centre in Alice Springs, situated only 600m from the Post Office, commenced operations in the late 1970's and since its inception it has become one of the most popular tourist attractions in Central Australia.

The television series 'The Flying Doctors' which was based on the real life RFDS and viewed around the globe, has made the Centre a "must see" for many travellers.

The Centre is interactive and you can choose to take part in a tour, stroll through the Museum, have a bite to eat in the Café, and wander through the gift shop to find that special gift to take home.
