Lost Camel Resort





…………………………………………….
Sometimes when I let my mind drift. I often think back on my last trip in Austrlia. For those of you who has not been there. It is like Sweden. But whith the major difference that the sun always shines.

When it comes to the hotel I think it is wounderful that they had focused on the basics.
A wounderful king size bed. A radio and the rest of the room did not have that much high tech gadgets.
It just felt that it had a lot of love.

The feeling of beeing in the pool. In a hotel where noone did got back to watch tv. Created a atmosfere where basicly everyone talked to everyone was.. Nice.. Back to the feeling in the pool with a glass of champange watching the sunset go down. Finding peace of mind.

The Sounds of Silence Dinner




“The romance of the desert, the setting of the sun behind the domes of Kata Tjuta (The Olgas), the haunting of a didgeridoo, a sumptunous Northern Territory Buffet fest of baramundi, kangaroo, emu, crocodile and bush salads – and some of the world´s finest star gazing: this is the best of the Red Centre distilled into four magical hours.

Just as the website. It was truly a could of magical hours.
Everything started with a buss ride out in to the middle of nowhere.
There whey had put like a fine dining restaurant with a sky filled with lights as a roof. No lights could be seen from any city. So the feeling of being surrounded with stars was magic.

The food had really been made with a lot of love. And it was really being like getting a taist of australian nature and food at the same time.

Spirit of all the people who where at the event was at the highest. And finding people to talk to about everything and nothing was not hard at all. After a while there was a person who took out a powerful spotlights. And while you were still eating she told stories about the stars that was just above us.

Everytime I think if this night I smile. So that is why I hope more people can take the trip and experience The Sounds of Silence dinner. Moments and places where you can listen to your own hearth beat is magic.

RFDS founder, Reverend John Flynn
The RFDS has a rich and vibrant history, starting with the dream of a Presbyterian minister, Reverend John Flynn. Ordained in 1911, Flynn initially worked in rural and remote Australia setting up hostels and bush hospitals for pastoralists, miners, road workers, railwaymen and other settlers. He witnessed the daily struggle of pioneers living in remote areas and his vision was to provide a ‘mantle of safety’ for people of the bush.

On 15 May 1928, his dream became a reality when a long time supporter, H.V. McKay, left a large bequest for ‘an aerial experiment’. This enabled Flynn to open the Australian Inland Mission Aerial Medical Service in Cloncurry, Queensland (later to be renamed the Royal Flying Doctor Service).

From that first flight in a single engine, fabric covered bi-plane, Flynn expanded the service to include the first ‘telehealth’ services for those in the bush using the early radios of the time (which later lead to the establishment of the famous School of the Air, which also still operates to this day).

Fittingly, in 1994 the Australian Council Office collaborated with the Reserve Bank of Australia on the design of the Australian twenty dollar note, which now features the face of the Reverend John Flynn.

The growth of the RFDS in those early days was rapid and soon reached right across our vast continent. By the late 1930’s there were Sections of the RFDS operating in Victoria, Western Australia, South Australia, New South Wales, Northern Territory and of course Queensland, and by the 1950s the RFDS was acknowledged by former Prime Minister Sir Robert Menzies as “perhaps the single greatest contribution to the effective settlement of the far distant country that we have witnessed in our time”. You can read more about the history of each of the RFDS Sections here. A biography on Reverend John Flynn can be found here.

From the 1960s the RFDS moved away from using aircraft contractors to instead progressively purchasing our own aircraft and employing our own pilots and engineers. Today, we own a fleet of 66 fully instrumented aircraft, operate from 23 aerobases across Australia and our pilots annually fly the equivalent of 34 round trips to the moon! We also now have customised vehicles built expressly for dental care, eye care and patient road transport. We’ve come a long way since that first flight in 1928 when the Flying Doctor became airborne!
