Elcho Island Airstrip

A new, secure aircraft compound will be constructed at the Elcho Island Airport in Arnhem Land.

The $3.16 million project is jointly funded by the Australian Government’s Regional Aviation Access Program and the Northern Territory Government.

Works include the demolition of the current western apron and construction of a larger paved apron area with edge lighting and line marking as well as the construction of a secure airplane compound with fencing, a lockable gate and CCTV cameras to provide security for airline operators.

Upgrading the facilities at the Elcho Island Airport will have a positive impact on the local community by creating jobs and improving facilities for continued tourism in the area.
