Generous supporters helped the Flying Doctor build a new Bundaberg Base in 2019.  Take a look around this world-class facility to see what we can achieve together:

It’s a stark contrast with our Mount Isa Base as Ebony can explain.

Not once, but twice, her baby son Ollie was flown to Mount Isa after having open-heart surgery when he was only 13 days old.

As Ebony says, Ollie had the very best care. But she was able to see how basic the facilities at our Mount Isa Base are. “It's very clean,” she says. “But it's just a shed where aircraft live.”

The building is 60 years old and struggles to withstand the extreme weather. There’s no dedicated place for patients and families to wait. Or for members of our aeromedical teams to be briefed, debriefed or receive training.

With the number of calls increasing, we urgently need your help to build a new Aeromedical Base and Patient Transfer Facility in Mount Isa. With your help, we’ll be able to deliver world-class care for years to come.

Daisy was still in her mum Shantell’s womb when she first flew from Rockhampton to Brisbane with the Flying Doctor. Although she’d only been there 32 weeks, a team of specialists were waiting to deliver her two months early after her mum developed severe preeclampsia.


Maddison spent a whole year in Brisbane and in hospital before she was well enough to return home. It was tough being apart from her brother Andrew for so long, and even tougher when she had to return to hospital again just days later after developing a severe infection.

In total, the Flying Doctor has had to fly Maddison five times in two years. She’s home now, and it makes her feel so safe to know that if anything goes wrong this Christmas, the Flying Doctor is ready to help – thanks to generous people like you.
