John Flynn Memorial Uniting Church

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

John Flynn dreamed of a cathedral within Central Australia where people of all faiths could worship. After his death, his friends across Australia built one in his memory. It was opened by the Prime Minister in 1956, and its design was a result of a national architectural competition incorporating passive cooling, local and national symbolism in its design.

Take a self-guided tour, walking the sign of the Cross built into the Church’s design, and learn about the many aspects of Flynn’s achievements in his life. Reflect for a moment on his life, and your own, in this peaceful sanctuary.

John Flynn Memorial Church is a part of The Flynn Trail, a self-guided heritage tour in Alice Springs and surrounds.
