About Quilpie Airport Mini Museum and Wool Scour


In 1930 famous Amy Johnson landed in Quilpie on her journey from England to Australia. The story goes that she was supposed to go to Charleville and she was following the railway line. Her map was outdated and it it had the railway line ending in Charleville …. but of course the line had been extended to Quilpie many year prior and hence she followed the line ending her in Quilpie.

Many year before the airport was here in Quilpie there was a wool scour operating, so go in side the Airport building and read the history on Amy Johnson and Quilpie Wool Scour.
