John Flynn Place Museum and Art Gallery

Cloncurry, Cloncurry Area

John Flynn Place Museum and Art Gallery in Cloncurry commemorates the work of John Flynn and the beginnings of the Royal Flying Doctor Service. The museum is a three story venue which also celebrates the contribution from Fred McKay and Alfred Traeger.

It was at Cloncurry that the Royal Flying Doctor Service was established in 1928. Flynn's choice of Cloncurry was based on its proximity to the mining camps and scattered pastoralists, all of whom were poorly served by any kind of medical services.

John Flynn Place houses an excellent overview of the Flynn legacy. The museum's display moves progressively from an image of outback conditions at the turn of the century to the history of Flynn himself. It includes some interesting personal memorabilia and explanations of how the whole Flying Doctor system worked in the early days.

The Radio Galley is a tribute to amazing work of Alfred Traeger, the inventive genius who gave a voice to Outback Australia, through the pedal radio. A valuable art collection is on display in the Fred McKay Art Gallery, which displays winners of the Ernest Henry Art Show and temporary exhibitions.
