Bairnsdale Aerodrome is conveniently located 10km to the southwest of the city of Bairnsdale just off the Princes Highway, 300km east of Melbourne.
Situated on a large land area of 280ha owned wholly by East Gippsland Shire Council, the Aerodrome is capable of accommodating considerable additional development and expansion.
One of the Aerodrome’s greatest attributes is the ability to develop areas of both aviation and non-aviation interest without creating conflict between the separate activities or their distinct objectives.
The Aerodrome's facilities support a number of commercial aviation enterprises including:
- aerial firefighting
- corporate charter
- aircraft support services such as fleet maintenance
- medical services such as air ambulance
- courier service.
The aerodrome has a rich World War 2 Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) History and retains several aspects of original RAAF infrastructure.
