Hervey Bay / Fraser Coast Airport

Hervey Bay / Fraser Coast Airport is the aerodrome for the city of Hervey Bay situated on the Fraser Coast, Queensland and after a $11.5 million upgrade which was completed mid 2005, is now a modern regional airport with many facilities placing the airport in good steed for future growth. 

Apart from a brand new terminal exhibiting a colourful and artistic decor, the runway was extended from 1500m (4921ft) to 2000m (6562ft) to accommodate jet services from Virgin Australia, QantasLink or Jetstar.

In 2006, the airport was the fastest growing in Queensland with passenger numbers doubling. The aerodrome resides at an elevation of 18m (60ft) above sea level with a single asphalt runway designated 11/29.

Today, the airport is serviced by the two mainstream carriers, QantasLink which provides regular flights from Brisbane & Sydney and Virgin Australia with direct flights from Sydney.

Hervey Bay Airport is also used as a hub by Seair Pacific to connect the Fraser Coast with Lady Elliot Island. To learn more about this, click onto the link below :


Additionally, Hervey Bay Airport is the home to a number of local businesses such as Air Fraser Island / AeroCommute, Fraser Coast Aircraft Maintenance and Skydive Hervey Bay.
