Built in the 1920s as the Australian Inland Mission hospital, Adelaide House was the first hospital in central Australia. Designed by the founding flying doctor Reverend John Flynn, it now displays photographs and implements of pioneering medical practice. At the rear of the building stands a small shed housing the original ‘pedal radio’ invented by Alfred Traeger.
