Nominate an RFDS Local Hero today

It's that time again. We're looking for ordinary Queenslanders who do extraordinary things. Do you know someone who volunteers their time and energy to help keep the Flying Doctor flying?

RFDS Local Heroes can be fundraisers, emergency or healthcare workers, or everyday people who help out whenever the Flying Doctor needs a hand.

Nominate someone from your community for the 2022 RFDS Local Hero Awards, and they could win $20,000, courtesy of Ergon Energy Retail, to help fund a vital health or wellbeing program in their community.

Nominations close Friday 25 March 2022.
