Welcome to the Qantas Founders Museum
We are an independent not-for-profit community organization and registered charity, operating since 1996, to commemorate the ethos and preserve the material heritage of Qantas Airways Ltd.
Today, we are an award winning, world-class museum and cultural display, eloquently telling the story of Qantas through interpretive displays, interactive exhibits, original and replica aircraft, an impressive collection of genuine artefacts and the National Heritage Listed Qantas Hangar.
Our aircraft collection incorporates four of the world’s most significant aircraft – the Consolidated PBY Catalina Flying Boat, Douglas DC-3, Boeing 707 and the legendary Boeing 747. In addition, we have full scale replicas of some of the most important aircraft in the early Qantas fleet – de Havilland DH-61 Giant Moth, de Havilland DH-50, and Avro 504K Dyak; Qantas’ first aircraft. Please be aware that due to the construction of the Airpark Roof, the Boeing 747 and Boeing 707 will not be accessible to the public until April 2020.
Our museum also provides a variety of experiences and guided tours.
PLEASE NOTE THERE WILL BE A CHANGE OF AIRCRAFT TOURS FROM 2 SEPTEMBER 2019 – 31 MARCH 2020. For more info click here.
