Cloncurry Airport has been the focal point for many of Australia's greatest innovations. Cloncurry was involved with the beginnings of Qantas in 1920, and the original Qantas Hangar is still in use at the aerodrome, where "Queensland and Northern Territory Aerial Service" is still displayed above the hangar door. When Qantas flew its first passenger from Longreach to Cloncurry on November 2 1922, it only cost 11 pounds 2 shillings.

The Royal Flying Doctor Service began its operations in Cloncurry more than 80 years ago and the town was then the arrival point for the first Qantas paying passenger flight.

Today, Qantas and the Royal Flying Doctor Service is now recognised the world over.
