Moruya Airport

Moruya Aerodrome is owned and operated by Eurobodalla Shire Council and in 2016 has received funding commitments of $7.1 million from the NSW and Australian Governments to commence a major redevelopment.

It was first licensed in 1939 as part of a joint Shire and Commonwealth assistance program. During WWII the RAAF acquired the aerodrome to form part of the RAAF Coastal Surveillance network.

At the end of the war, ownership then went to the Department of Civil Aviation. During the 1960s, the aerodrome underwent major upgrades with the addition of radio navigation aids, runway lighting and improvements to accommodate larger aircraft.

In 1991 with the introduction of the Local Ownership Plan, the Eurobodalla Shire Council accepted full responsibility for the control and operation of the aerodrome.

During 2005 the aerodrome changed from Licensed to Certified bringing it in line with International Civil Aviation Regulations.

Airline services

Free, non-secure parking is available adjacent to the terminal building.

Airport redevelopment

Council has been considering options to develop the airport to increase employment opportunities in the shire and to ensure the long term viability of the airport.

At its ordinary meeting on 26 May 2015, Council adopted a Master Plan which identifies a strategic direction for the airport and potential redevelopment opportunities. This Master Plan has been the basis of two successful grant applications to the NSW and Australian Governments which have yielded funding commitments of $7.1 million.

Around the aerodrome

The aerodrome has been built on an extensive beach ridge plane. It is bounded by the ocean, the Moruya River, a system of wetlands and native forests.

The area is host to a diversity of habitats utilised by native amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals. The dominant vegetation is eucalypts and banksias with paperbark and tea tree swamps in the wetlands.

There are many natural elements of scientific importance around the aerodrome. The preservation of these areas is an important part of the aerodrome operations.
