Meet John Flynn

Meet John Flynn. He founded the Royal Flying Doctor Service in 1928 and he’s honoured on the $20 note.

The story of the Royal Flying Doctor Service of Australia is forever linked with its founder, the Reverend John Flynn. Many referred to him as Flynn of the Inland – and his story of founding the Royal Flying Doctor Service is one that is celebrated on the $20 note.

Thanks to John Flynn’s efforts Australians working, living and travelling in rural and remote areas can receive vital health care.

As a charity, we need your help to keep reaching Australians. But you don’t have to fly a plane to help the Flying Doctor.

You can just Flick us a Flynn with our $20 Selfie Challenge.


By donating $20 you can help ensure Australian’s in the furthest corners receive the care they need.
