Meet…the Flying Doctors

Meet… the Flying Doctors
A picture book series about the extraordinary men and women who have shaped Australia’s history, including Reverend John Flynn and the Royal Flying Doctor Service.

In the early 20th century, Reverend John Flynn saw the potential for aeroplanes to bring urgent medical care to people in outback Australia. He campaigned for more than ten years to make his big idea a reality. That big idea became the Royal Flying Doctor Service. Today the RFDS is a not-for-profit organisation that provides emergency and primary health care across Australia.

From Ned Kelly to Nellie Melba; Captain Cook to Sidney Nolan, the Meet … series of picture books tells the exciting stories of the men and women who have shaped Australia’s history.
