The Presbyterian Inland Mission is the successor in the Presbyterian Church of Australia to the work of the Australian Inland Mission, founded by Rev. John Flynn. The equivalent in the Uniting Church is called Frontier Services.

The Presbyterian Inland Mission operates nine patrols, where trained Christians travel between settlements and stations in inland and outback Australia. They minister, and provide pastoral care and community assistance, including helping dealing with drought, isolation, and medical emergencies.

There are three patrol areas in Western Australia, one in South Australia, two in New South Wales, and three in Queensland. Other patrols are planned in the Northern Territory, Victoria, and Tasmania.

A similar ministry called Spinifex Ministries is operated by the Westminster Presbyterian Church of Australia [1].
