Built around the original Qantas Airways hangar, QANTAS Founders Museum tells the story of Australia's airline. Its airplane collection includes the airline's first jet (a Boeing 707) and a decommissioned Qantas Boeing 747. The 707 is the sister plane of another aircraft that is now owned and piloted by Qantas Ambassador John Travolta. A special tour allows you to explore the 747, including sitting in the pilot's seat and walking on a wing. Qantas was the only airline in the world to manufacture its own planes. There is also a life-size replica of an Avro 504K and a mint-condition DH-61.

QANTAS Founders Museum Reviews
You can easily spend a few hours looking around, lots of history and things we never knew. The gift shop has a variety of souvenirs to choose from and reasonably priced. The café had lovely scones... more »
Excellent, lots of exhibits and cafe but be prepared for the hangar - which is not air-conditioned and murder in the heat, during the tour. more »
I was completely disappointed when I arrived only to find it was more of a money milking scheme then actually sharing the history and full of empty hangers.... And you have to pay extra to go into the big plane because it's a special tour. My friends and I were gutted and will not be returning or recommending the museum to anyone. On the other hand I highly recommend visiting the stockman Hall of fame on the opposite side of the road.
a must for any person going through longreach. not only aircraft but good photos and details of the outback. very well set out. great displays. something for everyone. staff are very friendly and helpful.
