Create an itinerary including Qantas Founders 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.

  • Disappointed, expected more from such a world class company. It appears Qantas the Company has very little input into the museum. Limited exhibits haphazardly arranged. Would liked to have a closer...

  • This was really interesting, especially the guided tour of the planes and the light show at night. The staff are very knowledgeable, friendly and professional.

  • It is a very clean and welcoming place, and the staffs were friendly. However, it is so over priced for a very small display of what there is to see. It was pretty boring and one visit for a life time is enough. If you are not a Qantas fan maybe is better to spend your money somewhere else for better enjoyment. Don't get me wrong, I am sure you would enjoy it if you are into planes.
  • Had the pleasure of having an air park tour lead by Bryce. He is by far THE BEST tour guide we've ever had! Very informative and efficient! Must book in advance as its very popular and sells out quick!
