A hospital commemorates Carl Strehlow, a Lutheran missionary.

Carl Friedrich Strehlow (23 December 1871 – 20 October 1922) was a German Lutheran missionary in outback Australia who headed the Finke River Mission in Hermannsburg, Northern Territory from 1894-1922. He learnt and documented the languages of the Arrernte and Luritja people, and published together with Moritz von Leonhardi a seven-volume work on their culture. His son, Ted Strehlow, continued this work.
