The Runway physical characteristics are as follows: 07/25  070 37A  5700/450(65 PSI)  WID 18 RWS 90

The Runway is fitted with Low Intensity Runway Lighting (LIRL) and the main Taxiway has edge lighting which are both Pilot Activated Lighting (PAL) along with the Illuminated Wind Directional Indicator.


Direct access is provided to the main sealed apron and hangar areas from the Runway via a Code B Taxiway. The main apron area is approximately 60m long by 35m wide. The Airport has a modern 100m2 terminal building and 3 private hangars. The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) has aerial fire fighting facilities with an apron and Taxiway leading directly onto the Runway. There is a significant amount of space for hangar development with direct access to the Runway.


The manoeuvring pavement has a Pavement Classification Number (PCN) of 5, and can withstand a maximum tyre pressure of 65 psi. If your aircraft exceeds the PCN, contact must be made to the Aerodromes Coordinator or Aerodrome Reporting Officer to apply for a Pavement Concession.


Additional facilities at the terminal building includes toilets, showering facilities and a kitchen. The terminal building is enclosed with a fence and gate entering airside. Orbost Airport is fitted with 24-hour CCTV covering the driveway access entrance, inside the terminal, coverage of Runways and apron areas.
