The Mission was founded by Reverend Johann Flier from Cooper Creek in South Australia. In November 1855 Flier was on his way to found a Mission in Papua New Guinea when he was delayed at Cooktown, in far north Queensland. This led him to establish a Mission near the beach at Elim on Cape Bedford.
Within 10 years the administrative centre of the Mission moved to Hope Valley, some 10 kilometres south.
