The Donaldson Collection – Exhibition
11 Jan 2021 @ 9:00 am - 21 Mar 2021 @ 4:00 pm
This is a Photographic Exhibition of the Life in the Gulf Country of Outback Queensland 1910- 1927. The Donaldson Collection includes images of the Donaldson family including cattle station manager Willie Donaldson, his wife Helen and their children, at Riversleigh and Rocklands from 1920-1927. The exhibition gives us insight into what life was like for people on those remote properties and reminds us why the Queensland and Northern Territory Aerial Services Limited (QANTAS) was established in Outback Queensland.
Willie Donaldson was one of three men to be killed in a Qantas crash in 1927 in a DH-9c while landing at Tambo.
This exhibition is free to view.
This event is part of Qantas Founders Museum’s Celebration of the Qantas Centenary Program of Events.
Celebration of the Qantas Centenary Program of Events is funded under the Year of Outback Tourism Events Program
