Broome Airport - Broome, WA

Broome Airport

In 1922 Broome Airport was a smooth patch of sand on Cable Beach. In the mid 1920s a dirt strip was laid out near the current location of the airport. During 1935 aircraft activity increased and the east strip was subsequently laid out with a shed used as the passenger terminal. During the Second World War aircraft activity increased dramatically as the airport was used as a refueling stop for military aircraft and a stopover for flying boats evacuating Dutch refugees from Java. In 1991 Airport Engineering Services purchased the airport from the Federal Department of Transport with a plan to relocate the airport to the north east of Broome.
