Hobart Airport, 17 kilometres east of Tasmania’s capital city, is Australia’s aviation gateway to East Antarctica and the Southern Ocean, facilitating regular flights to Wilkins Aerodrome near Casey station.
Our 24-hour curfew-free airport provides a full range of services, including fuel handling, customs, immigration and quarantine services, ground, crew and passenger handling (including international flights), on-site hotel accommodation and aircraft parking.
Hobart Airport has commenced strengthening our 2,727 metre runway to enable one-stop international flights to Antarctica, enabling fully laden Code E aircraft to take off and land from mid-2024.
Our aviation support and light industrial precincts already host CSIRO and the Australian Antarctic Division. Hobart Airport has greenfield space available for development of both land and airside infrastructure and facilities to support government and commercial Antarctic operations.
