Tour Guide describing characteristics of the aircraft during the Airpark Tour

Qantas Founders Museum is a world-class organisation here to tell the story of Australia’s national airline, from its early days in Outback Queensland to present day.

Characters of the early Qantas days, their pioneering spirit and the impact the airline had for all Australians, is brought to life through life size exhibits, historical artifacts and interactive displays including the National Heritage Listed Qantas Hangar.

Visitors can enjoy informative guided tours of the Boeing 707, Boeing 747, Super Constellation and DC-3 in the Museum’s Airpark Enclosure. Our Museum also has a restaurant for guests to enjoy a meal or refreshment and a Founders Store to buy a souvenir for themselves or a loved one. In the evening our guests can enjoy our Luminescent Longreach light and sound experience designed to delight, entertain, inform and move.
