Fred McKay Museum

Galleries, Museums and Collections

At the Fred McKay Museum, you can gain new insight into the lives of the people who live in the outback.

Be inspired by the story of Rev Fred McKay – a much loved and respected friend of the many people who came to pioneer new lifestyles in the outback. He helped to develop hospitals, medical services, and hostels for school children and supported bush mothers.

The museum shares stories of ordinary people who achieved extraordinary success against huge challenges.

Take the 5-minute silent walk to the Fred and Meg McKay Peace Garden, the resting place of Fred and Meg McKay, which is adjacent to the Swag Chapel that was hand-built by students and staff.

The Fred McKay Museum is located in the Fred McKay Education Centre, an iconic, symbolic building. The museum is part of the Flynn Trail and is open during school days from 9am to 11am. It is closed from December to the end of January inclusive.
