The Outback Evangelist: The Story of Ernest and Euphemia Kramer

ERNEST AND EUPHEMIA KRAMER spent twenty-one years taking the Christian message and practical help to the Aborigines and settlers of Central Australia’s harsh, forbidding outback. After ten years travelling the countryside in a flimsy cart drawn by horses or donkeys, they settled in Alice Springs. For the next eleven years Ernest spent six months of each year travelling the outback with two Aboriginal helpers and a team of camels. Among his friends in Alice Springs were Dr John Flynn, Professors Ted Strehlow and John Cleland, Doctor Charles Duguid and Pastor Friedrich Albrecht. In April 1977 the Kramer Memorial Church was erected in his honour in Parke Terrace, Alice Springs.
