Maryborough / Hervey Bay Airparks - Fraser Coast Fly-in - Maryborough Airport - 8-9 August 2015

Proudly hosted by the recently launched Fraser Coast Residential Airpark, Hervey Bay Airpark, and the Maryborough Aero Club, and with the assistance of the Hervey Bay Aero Club, the inaugural Fraser Coast Fly-in is expected to be held over the weekend of Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 August 2015 at Maryborough Airport.

All types of aircraft are welcome at the fly-in with arrivals expected during the Saturday morning.  Following lunch at the Maryborough Aero Club, the skies above the Airport will host a flying competition with the winner receiving an Apple iPad along with a 12 month subscription to Oz Runways!

During the evening relax and enjoy dinner and entertainment again at the Maryborough Aero Club.  Accommodation can be obtained at one of Maryborough's Hotels - transfers are available - or airside underwing camping is also available with toilets and showers provided at the Airport.

The fly-in coincides with the very successful and popular Hervey Bay Seafood Festival when, on Sunday 9 August, fly-in participants can catch a transfer bus to Fisherman's Park, Urangan, to sample the treats or just soak up the atmosphere of the only seafood festival in Australia managed by the men and women who catch it for you.

The Fraser Coast Residential Airpark and Hervey Bay Airpark were successfully launched at the recent 2015 Australian International Airshow at Avalon, Victoria.  About 160 new houses, some with private aircraft hangars, are set to be developed in the new airpark at Maryborough Airport in a joint venture deal with The Fraser Coast Regional Council.  Development is also expected to commence at Vanderwolfe Road in Hervey Bay.

The Council has signed a joint venture agreement with local businesses to develop the residential airpark which is expected to start mid 2016.  While the council owns the land at the airport, it will be developed by the Fraser Coast Residential Airpark Pty Ltd.

More information about the Fly-in and the Airparks can be obtained by sending an email to:

Or by phoning Ward on 0427 282 088 or Brad on 0416 00 7777.

It certainly looks like a great weekend in store!
