How You Can Help and Be Part of Bundaberg's History

With your support, we can build a world-class facility right here in Bundaberg, Queensland.

The RFDS and LifeFlight have committed funds to this project and secured partial funding through the Australian Government’s Building Better Regions Fund to ensure the necessary infrastructure is in place to optimise service delivery and support the future deployment of enhanced fixed wing and rotary wing operations.

However, the project still requires significant funding.

$3 million dollars has been secured – we need $3 million more – can you help us?

While this important infrastructure project has received the generous funding from the Australian Government ($3million) and a generous long-term leasehold from Bundaberg Regional Council (25 years), our two well respected charitable institutions are required to contribute 50% of the total project costs.

Achieving this important co-contribution together is vitally important, with the community’s support essential in achieving our vision for a world leading aeromedical operation in Bundaberg.
