Bourke Airport

Bourke is 780km north west of Sydney on the Mitchell Highway, 136km south of the Queensland border. The Airport is located 7.5km from the Town Centre.

Bourke Airport (IATA: BRK, ICAO: YBKE) is an airport in Bourke, New South Wales, Australia.

The airport at Bourke was built in 1942-43 by the allied works Council for Defence purposes in WW2. Since then it has acted as a lifeline for the Bourke District. In both the 1976 and 1990 floods, food supplies were delivered to Bourke by the RAAF (Royal Australian Air Force). It also served as the base for the famous Nancy Bird, Australia's first female pilot to operate a commercial license. From Bourke she flew the air ambulance to save the lives of many outback Australians. The Bourke terminal is now named after her for all her dedication to the Bourke Shire.
