Merimbula Airport General Aviation Precinct

Project Summary/background

The project is a part of the Merimbula Airport Master Plan that was adopted in 2013.  It is the first stage in the provision of taxiways, roadways, services and building platforms for the commercial and general aviation precinct.  It is located on the northern and western sides of Merimbula Aircraft Maintenance, to the north of the Merimbula Airport Passenger Terminal.  Once complete business and light aircraft owners will be able to lease land for use to park aircraft, and construct hangars and buildings for aviation-based businesses.


General aviation and commercial aviation-based businesses are a usual part of a regional airport, including Merimbula Airport.  The Merimbula Airport Master Plan, identifies the consolidation of these businesses in the location outlined in this project.  This will allow for the rest of the airport site to be progressed in accordance with the master plan and more effectively separate the passenger transport activity from the rest of the airport activity.


The NSW Government is contributing $4 million, with Council contributing a further $620,000.
