19th August - 31st August

The Outback Air Race is a GPS-based navigation time trial throughout the Australian outback with the aim to raise funds for the Royal Flying Doctor Service. This year’s event will take the competitors "Coast to Coast" from Archerfield, Queensland, to Broome, Western Australia.

Every aircraft entered is considered a ‘team’. In order to participate each team is required to fundraise a minimum of $2,000 per person, however many teams raise much more than this. All donations received through Every Day Hero (EDH) go direct to the Royal Flying Doctor Service, (EDH do receive a small commission for maintaining the website).

More information on the race route, rules, etc can be found on the main website link below.


Supporters will generally donate to a specific team however we have also set up an event account which is for donations to the race itself rather than any particular team. Links to team pages can be found on our website: http://www.outbackairrace.com.au/teams


Funds raised will go to the RFDS. Funds raised by teams will go towards RFDS operations in the teams’ state of origin.  The effort that you put into fundraising will therefore be in support of RFDS services in your own “outback” and local communities.


All team registrations must be completed via the team registration form available on the OAR website (link below). Once the form and entry fee has been processed, the OAR committee will issue the team leader with a fundraising page URL, login name and password. The team leader can then log in to EDH and customise their own page with team photos, bios, logos and create blog posts, or the OAR committee can complete this for the team.
