Lake Grace Australian Inland Mission Hospital Museum

One of only three Australian Inland Mission Hospitals left in Australia.

Hospitals and medical staff were a rarity in the early 1900s. Hospitals were often funded by communities and religious organisations, such as the Australian Inland Mission (AIM), or champions like Presbyterian Reverend John Flynn, better known as Flynn of the Outback. Outback hospitals serviced very large areas. The Lake Grace AIM Hospital opened in 1926 and serviced an area of 16,000km2. Today, there are very few AIM hospitals left in Australia. This collection includes two original hospital beds and a microscope from the hospital's longest serving doctor.
