Information

One of the many monuments throughout Central Australia dedicated to John Flynn. This one is at the junction of the Stuart and Barkly Highways about twenty kilometres north of Tennant Creek.
In Alice Springs itself is the Flynn Memorial Church, designed by Arthur Philpott and built as a lasting memorial to Flynn for his tremendous achievements for the people of the Outback.
Its foundation stone was laid by the then Prime Minister R.G. Menzies in June 1954 and officially opened on 5 May 1956. On one of the plaques one can read 'For Christ and the Continent. This Church has been erected by the Australian Inland Mission to the Glory of God and in the memory of the Very Rev. John Flynn, D.D., O.B.E., Superintendent A.I.M., 1912-1951; founder Royal Flying Doctor Service; Moderator-General Presbyterian Church, 1939-1942. He spread a mantle of safety over the inland.'
