Johann Flierl

Johann Flierl (1858 – 1947) missionary
In 1885 a tall, strong, determined young man, Johann Flierl founded the Hope Vale mission station among the Aboriginals during an enforced stay in Cooktown, Queensland.

Lutheran involvement in the North Queensland area began in 1885 when Missionary Johann Flierl stopped off at Cooktown on his way to New Guinea. He received government permission to start a mission station which he called Elim. The Immanuel Lutheran Synod in South Australia supported work amongst the Guugu Yimidhirr people by sending CA Meyer, George Schwarz and Wilhelm Poland. Elim became known as Hope Valley, and later Hope Vale.
