Mount Gambier Airport

The Mount Gambier Airport is located on the Riddoch Highway (also known as Penola Road), 12kms north of Mount Gambier on the Limestone Coast of South Australia.

Since its inception in 1936, the Airport has been host to scheduled airline transport with World War II forcing the only interruption to these services.  During the years of World War II, the Airport served as a RAAF training base.  A history of the Airport can be found by clicking here.

The Mount Gambier Airport Master Plan is a document created for the purpose of ensuring continual improvement, sustainability, accountability and growth of the airport.  The Airport Masterplan can be found here.

The Airport is owned and operated by the District Council of Grant, having acquired responsibility for the Airport from the Federal Government on the 1st July 1989.  The Airport, on Monday, 16 June 2014, opened its new secure long-term carpark.  The carpark is totally secure and is electronically monitored.  Further information can be found by clicking here.  Further information on the Carpark and the Airport can be found on the Airport’s website or facebook page
