This house is not always open so it pays to check times. There is parking close by near the church. The house is wheelchair friendly if you ask as they provide alternative access. The work of John Flynn is showcased here and to see his ingenuity and dedication to the inland mission along with the innovation within the house/museum is wonderful. It is entry via gold coin donation but well worth it if you can plan you time to visit.

I liked this. For a donation entrance fee it was nice. Great volenteers that answered all kinds of questions.

Highly recommended to anybody who is interested in architecture of building. This building was originally designed as a hospital. It has a very ingenious cooling system which does not need electricity.

Looking at the struggle of the outback pioneers and the conditions they lived in gives you an appreciation of how far we have come.
