Adelaide House Museum

Designed by Rev John Flynn (the man of the $20 note) and built in 1926, Adelaide House was the first hospital in Central Australia.

Taking into consideration the heat in central Australia, it's home to the original evaporative cooling system which was an amazing piece of engineering . It was also the site of the development of the pedal radio which led to the breaking of the silence of the outback for many.

Come in and enjoy the history of this beautiful and iconic building as well as the hospitality of the local volunteers who will share a cuppa with you after the tour. It is a simple museum but the volunteers work hard to preserve the memory of the tough and dedicated people who served the outback since the turn of the century.

Described by one visitor as a "Fascinating look at early Alice Springs life and the enormous sacrifices that the early settlers made. Well worth taking a tour with the lovely volunteers who look after the place. "

It's only $5 entry per person which goes towards the upkeep of the Museum.
