WINTON and the QANTAS Story by Jeff Close

This 117 page book was written to help commemorate the Centenary of QANTAS' first board meeting, held at the Winton Club in Winton on the 10th of February, 1921.

It takes the form of a self-drive around Winton, visiting sites of significance in the story of the formation of QANTAS over 100 years ago. Couple this with local QANTAS stories, historical photos, maps, clippings from the newspapers of the day and background on one of the key successes to the formation of QANTAS, Winton's McMaster family.

You will see why Sir Hudson Fysh, one of the founders of QANTAS, wrote: " The idea of QANTAS was conceived in Cloncurry, born in Winton and grew up in Longreach". Another real OUTBACK Queensland success story.
