Step off Todd Mall and into pioneering life in one of the earliest buildings in Alice Springs.

More information

Journey to the heart of Alice Springs and be inspired by Rev John Flynn’s historic vision for the bush.

Designed by Flynn, Adelaide House is one of the earliest buildings in Alice Springs, built in 1920 by the Australian Inland Mission. As you step into the cool interior of this historic building situated in the heart of Todd Mall, you’ll step back in time. Wander the displays to learn Flynn’s story and the connection of the bush nursing hostel and the Traeger Pedal Radio, which brought health services to the vast outback.

Experience the hospitality and healing of this peaceful sanctuary, offering home-style and historic food, tea/coffee, local products promoting healing, wellbeing and inspiration.

Adelaide House is a part of The Flynn Trail, a self-guided heritage tour in Alice Springs and surrounds.
