Qantas Founders Museum

Galleries, Museums and Collections

Qantas Founders Museum is an independent not-for-profit community organisation, operating since 1996, to commemorate the ethos and preserve the material heritage of the founders and early operations of Qantas Airways Ltd.

Qantas Founders Museum is a world-class museum and cultural display, eloquently telling the story of the founding of Qantas through interpretive displays, interactive exhibits, replica aircraft and an impressive collection of genuine artefacts.

The collection incorporates the Consolidated PBY Catalina Flying Boat, the Super Constellation, Douglas DC3, Boeing 707 and the legendary Boeing 747. In addition, QFM has full scale replicas of De Haviland DH-61 Giant Moth, De Haviland DH-50, and Avro 504k Dyak; Qantas’ first aircraft.

Visitors can enjoy guided tours of the Airpark and the Light & Sound Show experience – “Luminescent Longreach”.

“Luminescent Longreach” is a spectacular night time experience designed to delight, entertain, inform and move. Stand amongst iconic aircraft as world class projection mapping and 360 degree immersive sound brings the 100 year story of Qantas to life with the mighty Boeing 747 serving as a primary canvas.

To visit the Museum and enjoy their many experiences, please book online through the Museum’s website. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, spaces are limited and bookings are essential.
