John Flynn Place Museum and Art Gallery

Galleries, Museums and Collections

When vision meets innovation, all goals are achievable.

In honor of the extraordinary efforts and achievements of Australia’s early pioneers, the Cloncurry John Flynn Place Museum pays tribute to Reverend John Flynn and his team for their dedication and success in overcoming isolation and bringing communication education, and health to remote Australia. The museum takes you on a journey following in Flynn’s footsteps from conception, birth; and legacy of the Royal Flying Doctor Service, born in Cloncurry, 1928 to improve quality of life for rural Australians.

Flynn’s vision took him on a lifelong adventure connecting him with the likes of genius innovators like Alfred Traeger, the inventive genius who “gave voice to the outback” with his pedal radio’s, veteran pilots; hardened nurses and everyday heroes living in the harshest and remote conditions in the Country. The Museum commemorates the committed men and women who dedicated their lives to the dream.
