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

Today, they are 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.

Their collection incorporates four of the world's most significant airliners - the Consolidated PBY Catalina Flying Boat, Douglas DC3, Boeing 707 and the legendary Boeing 747. In addition, they have full scale replicas of some of the most important aircraft in the early Qantas fleet - DeHaviland DH-61 Giant Moth, DeHaviland DH-50, and Avro 504k Dyak; Qantas' first ever aircraft.
