The National Pioneer Women’s Hall of Fame is one of two women’s museums in Australia. It is dedicated to preserving the place of women in history for their special contribution to Australia’s heritage and was founded by Molly Clark of Old Andado Station in 1993. Along with the move to the Old Alice Springs Gaol in 2007 came the responsibility to research and promote the history of the Old Alice Springs Gaol.
