It operates the "Qantas Founders Museum". While Museums preserve past heritage for the historical, educational and entertainment benefit of the community, within this Museum, displaying people, places and aeroplanes, and the re-creation of flight in this pioneer era of aviation, there is a theme for the present generations of Australians
The Qantas Founders Museum is the initiative of people of Western Queensland.
25 Year milestone for QFM in 2013
25 years ago a group of enthusiastic Longreach locals came together to ensure that there was a home for the Avro 504 replica. That same replica. is now the centerpiece display in a multi-million dollar museum that has attracted visitors from all over the world.
Over the years we have hosted Royalty, stars, and the traveling public, providing an insight into the foundation years of the Queensland And Northern Territory Aerial Services or Q.A.N.T.A.S.
To celebrate this milestone, QFM held a dinner in August 2013 at the museum.
