Archerfield Airport

Archerfield Airport is a leased federal airport located 11-12 km south of Brisbane. The facility was once the primary airport for the city and served as a Royal Australian Air Force base during World War II. Today, it is a popular venue for sporting events, concerts, and trade shows.

The airport is close to Brisbane, so the surrounding area has easy access for those who need to travel by air. Archerfield Airport is a great destination for commercial flights, and is also a popular spot for charter flights and private planes. It is also an ideal place to have aircraft maintenance work done.

The buildings at Archerfield Airport are remarkably well preserved. They illustrate the evolution of aviation in the Brisbane Region and are significant evidence of pioneering aviation. The main hangars to the north, shell refuelling building, parachute preparation shed, and administration building are representative of early aviation developments in the region.

Archerfield is also the site of a historic cemetery. God’s Acre Historic Cemetery is located on the site of the aerodrome. The Grenier family originally owned the land, but later sold it to the Beatty family. During the war, the RAAF built 35 buildings, including the airfield.

Archerfield Aerodrome was an important commercial airport in Brisbane from 1931 to 1949. US forces used the airport to access Camp Columbia nearby during World War II. It was also the site of a number of aircraft operations by the RAAF and Royal Navy. Today, it serves as a secondary airport for private planes.
