The Australian Inland Mission was started by the Rev. John Flynn and the first outpost was established at Oodnadatta in 1912.

 

The number of inland missions grew steadily and the A.I.M. supplied nurses and religious staff to assist people living in very remote areas.

 

Before the West Australian Government took over responsibility for many health services in country areas it was the A.I.M. that was to provide help and support for both European and Aboriginal people in the outback.

 

A.I.M. missions established in Western Australia included Halls Creek 1918, Kununurra 1963, Warburton Range, Esperance 1930, Marble Bar 1926, Fitzroy Crossing 1939, Roebourne and Exmouth.
