If you visit the QF website, there’s a rather nice history piece – starting back with Hudson Fysh at Longreach! You have to click on the link near the top of this page: Visit the Qantas 85th Birthday site – sorry, it opens a separate window that has no URL.
(It is missing their part in WWII – and the aircraft that went down in Java with Captain Bateman in control – Winifred, his wife turned 90 the other day and she’s still determined to join in the celebrations!)
