Property Maintenance Australia P/L Pilatus PC-12/47E VH-WJA arrived into Rockhampton Airport from Dubbo before then flying up to Kidston. 

RDO Equipment Co. (ex Vanderfield) Pilatus PC-12/47 VH-WPH departed Emerald Airport for Saint George and Goondiwindi before then later returning to St George and Emerald Airport.  VH-WPH then flew down to Toowoomba.

Finally, also on Tuesday 4 October, Hawker Beechcraft G58 Baron VH-EZD departed Hamilton Island Airport for Rockhampton Airport and then Monto Aerodrome.  It had flown into Hamo from Monto Aerodrome last Friday 30 September.

Brescon (Toowoomba) Beech B200 King Air VH-XDW flew up from Toowoomba-Wellcamp to Thargomindah and then Rockhampton Airport.  It later departed back to Wellcamp. 

Brescon (Toowoomba) Beech B200 King Air VH-DYN arrived into the Labona Station Airstrip within Adani Australia's (Bravus Mining & Resources) Carmichael Coal Mine site from Toowoomba-Wellcamp.  It is due to return to Wellcamp early on Wednesday 5 October.

While New South Wales National Parks and Wildlife Textron Aviation (Cessna) 208B Caravan VH-TFV "Park Air 26" flew up from Ballina / Byron Bay Gateway Airport to the Sunshine Coast and then Mackay Airport where it appears to be staying. 

UPDATE!  On Wednesday 5 October, VH-TFV "Park Air 26" departed Mackay Airport for Mount Isa.

And Pel-Air SAAB 340A Freighter VH-KDK was noted flying up from Brisbane to Rockhampton Airport and then Mackay Airport as PFY7416/8.  It then flew back to Brisbane from Mackay Airport as PFY7410.

I assume these flights are once again for Qantas Freight and replace the BAe 146 freight flights that have operated each week-day morning also into Rockhampton Airport and Mackay Airport for the last month.

UPDATE!  NO!  On Wednesday 5 October, Qantas Freight (Pionair Australia operated) British Aerospace BAe 146-200QT VH-SFV was noted back on the Brisbane to Rockhampton and Mackay Airports run.
