Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

One of the dozen hospitals in remote locations facilitated by the Australian Inland Mission, the “bush department of the Presbyterian church” in the early 1900s. These hospitals and the flying doctor service were the dream of John Flynn of the AIM.
The Lake Grace building is one of the three hospitals still standing. The building has been painstakingly restored by the local community and has much original hospital furniture and equipment. The experiences of the nurses, doctors and patients are illustrated on story boards around the complex.
Tours can be arranged by ringing the Lake Grace visitor centre (0898652140). Jo from the visitor centre was a super guide to the museum and a great source of information about Lake Grace and good things to see and do.

Great informative tour, whole family really enjoyed it and everyone leaned something.
Did not realise at first that tours had to be booked at the visitors centre in town. But the lady was super helpful and came and gave us a tour straight away.
Highly recommend!

We were pleasantly surprised to find this museum was available to view on request & it’s almost free. They do appreciate a donation which we were more than happy to comply with. It was really interesting

My mother stayed here when it was nurses quarters as a young woman as did other family members and friends, so the hospital has history for us. It has been well preserved and there is lots of information posted around it. Unfortunately it's not open a lot, though you can phone for a tour. We could see a bit through the windows and we were satisfied with what we did see. As it is next to the 'new' hospital (opened in about 1952!) we were able to look around at the gardens there as well.

In this lovely town you find the renovated inland hospital that was there due to john Flynn ( who happens to be on our $20 note). There are only 3 left in Australia and Lake Grace community came together and saved it so that we were able to take our children around the museum with our lovely tour guide. Lots of interesting things to look at. Donation for entry and it is always closed but if you ask at the visitor center they will open it up for you. We were glad we went. The kids asked lots of questions. Very basic but I would advise you to have a look.

A personalised guided tour by Elsie Bishop, a former nurse, took us back to the operational days of the Mission Hospital. Not only informative but very interesting. Personal anecdotes of patients and staff were fascinating and sometimes very humorous. It is very well equipped with vintage medical instruments, nurses outfits and hospital paraphernalia. Even a primitive humidicrib. One of the highlights of our Western Australia holiday.

Wonderful little building containing a lot of history and information. Worth a visit. At the time of arrival, there was no guide to show us around, but there was a person present who was happy for us to wonder around the building. So much history contained within. Souvenirs available for purchase.

Who knew that a gem like even existed - let alone in Lake Grace! There are plenty of good signs and a great brochure so you can walk around and get the feel of the place. It's a bit of WA history that I never knew about!
