Totally unique amongst coastal townships of East coast Australia, Evans Head is in possession of this major and significant piece of aviation infrastructure & history, and brings with it substantial economic and lifestyle benefits to the local and greater community.
For the Airpark residents, local aviators and businesses, it allows access to ideallic surrounds, a strong & supportive community, and lifestyle benefits unequalled at any other aviation base in Australia.
Built in WWII, the aerodrome boasts wide sealed runways in good condition. When complete two runways will be operational 18/36 1300m and 09/27 900m.
Freehold residential airpark lots range in size from 1,350m2 to 2,700m2
all with wide frontage to taxiways. Building covenants will ensure a high
standard of construction and long term aesthetics.
Freehold airside lots provide aviation businesses the opportunity to invest in their business without the worry associated with dramatically escalating costs as seen at many other aerodromes.
A 2.9 Ha site is provided for 4 to 5 star hotel accommodation – a level currently not available in Evans Head. These facilities and the picturesque location provide businesses and groups with the ideal place to hold specialised functions.
These lots expand the light industrial land currently available. Located within the aerodrome confines, they
are ideal for aviation related businesses which do not necessarily require direct airside access.
With restoration fully funded by Evans Head Airpark & Richmond Valley Council,
the WWII Bellman Hangar and the museum it houses was opened in August, 2014 and is drawing crowds to Evans Head with its F-111 display.
Freehold sites will be offered later in the development for private hangars. Available sizes will accommodate most light GA aircraft.
A large site is being made available for a future museum and community use facility, to house the continued expansion of the existing aviation museum, the Evans Head Living museum, and the needs of existing, aerodrome based community groups.
