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.

Well-presented information and some interesting old planes to explore. I did not pay the extra to walk through the 747.

Very informative. It's fascinating to learn the history of Qantas. The problems faced by pioneers of air travel. The light show on the evening is a must see. Three cheers for the wonderful staff and guides. Since, it's a community based operation,I think everyone should get out there and support the effort. 👍🙏
Tour was great. We got to hear the history of Qantas and see inside several of the aircraft that had been used by Qantas over time. See how the rich and famous travelled in a private jet. After the tour we then spent time browsing through the museum
