Specialty Museum Museum
Built around the original Qantas Airways hangar, QANTAS Founders Museum tells the story of Australia's airline. Its airplane collection includes the airline's first jet (a Boeing 707) and a decommissioned Qantas Boeing 747. The 707 is the sister plane of another aircraft that is now owned and piloted by Qantas Ambassador John Travolta. A special tour allows you to explore the 747, including sitting in the pilot's seat and walking on a wing. Qantas was the only airline in the world to manufacture its own planes. There is also a life-size replica of an Avro 504K and a mint-condition DH-61. Put QANTAS Founders Museum into our Longreach trip builder and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • My wife and i visited this display and very extremely happy with the displays ,planes ,guided tours,and first class eatery.The time and effort that this company put in to their employees is phenomenal. Such a informative jet tour and wing walks Nothings a problem when you ask questions. A real must this austrailian attraction is.The venue and toilet facilities are spottless.
  • Excellent very informative. well worth the visit
  • Fantastic day ,very informative. Great staff.
  • We had Caleb for our tour and he was very knowledgeable and always had an answer to our questions. Yeah it's a little expensive but at least it's going to the locals.
  • Awesome place to visit. We did the plane tour, which was very interesting, learning different parts on a plane as well as the plans history. It's a must see. WARNING, if you have trouble climbing stairs then don't do the plane tour, there are a lot to climb.
