We're expanding

From mid 2017, construction will start on a major expansion project which will see the airport terminal building's footprint more than double in size.

The total project budget including design costs is $4.7M. This is being jointly funded from the Restart NSW Fund ($3.3M) and by Council ($1.4M).

Key features of the project include;

  • a bigger arrivals hall
  • dual baggage carousels  
  • larger departure lounge
  • an outdoor courtyard
  • reconfiguration of the café/bar

The upgrade will alleviate passenger congestion, especially in the arrivals and departures areas during peak periods, as well as accommodate for future passenger growth as a result of projected increases in visitors to the region.

Work is due to be completed in 2018.

The airport will remain open and fully operational during the construction period.
