Airport Redevelopment Project overview

Parkes is a strategic and expanding inland freight transit location at the intersection of national highway and rail corridors (Sydney-Perth and inland Brisbane-Melbourne). It is also considered the best location in eastern Australia (outside of the capital cities) for a new jet airport for 24-hour passenger and air freight operations - with an adjoining large-scale Logistics precinct - spread over more than 1,000 ha?2,470 acres.

The Project encompasses the expanding Airport as an anchor tenant to provide air freight and aviation engineering uses, co-located with the planned large scale Logistics and Light Industrial User Precinct leveraging the regions existing transport infrastructure (5 highways and the existing east-west and future north-south inland rail line).

Parkes A variety of attractive incentives are available for the relocation of aviation, logistics, agri-food related light industry and other uses to Parkes Airport and Parkes Terminal. Enquiries are now being received via the "contact us" page.

Council operates a licenced airport at Parkes and grassed airstrips at Peak Hill, Trundle and Tullamore.

The Parkes Airport is well serviced by regular public transport (RPT), and has an Aero Club, a Training School, an aircraft maintenance business, and a refuelling agent, operating on the grounds.

Approximately 15,000 passengers pass through Parkes Airport each year.


Airport

Stage 3 of the Parkes Airport Redevelopment involves runway expansion with an upgraded Category 1 jet aircraft runway (initially approx. 3,200m although existing consent applies for expansion up to 3,800m), new aprons, new taxi-ways, aviation and general purpose fuel farm, air freight terminal and aviation engineering development.
