Qantas Founders Museum

Longreach, Longreach Area

Qantas Founders Museum (QFM) is an independent not-for-profit community organisation, operating since 1996, to commemorate the ethos and preserve the material heritage of the founders and early operations of Qantas Airways Ltd.

QFM is 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.

The collection incorporates the Consolidated PBY Catalina Flying Boat, the Super Constellation, Douglas DC3, Boeing 707 and the legendary Boeing 747. In addition, QFM has full scale replicas of De Haviland DH-61 Giant Moth, De Haviland DH-50, and Avro 504k Dyak; Qantas' first aircraft.

From 2 September 2019 – 31 March 2020, QFM's aircraft tours will change due to construction work for the Museum’s Airpark Roof Project which will affect the Museum’s current aircraft tours. From 2 September 2019, QFM will offer a one hour Captain’s Tour which will include a guided tour of the perimeter of Airpark site filled with information about the Museum’s Airpark Roof Project, Boeing 747, 707 and Super Constellation followed by a video display of behind the scenes footage of the Boeing 747 narrated by a retired Qantas Boeing 747 Captain.

Due to current health advice on social distancing, please contact the business for the most up to date information regarding opening times and services.
