Boonah Airfield Scenic Rim

Boonah Airfield




Boonah Airfield is a country grass airstrip situated in the picturesque Scenic Rim, just 1 hours drive south west of Brisbane.

The airstrip was established in 1978 and it has long been a haven for recreational pilots and aviation enthusiasts. It is the home base of the Flying Tigers Ultralight Club, the Boonah Gliding Club, Airsport Qld flying lessons and Ultimate Aero an aircraft maintenance organisation.

Boonah Airfield is also a valuable regional infrastructure asset for the local Boonah community and wider area.  It is used as a base for aerial waterbomber aircraft during bushfires and for medical patient air transport as required.


The airfield contributes to the wider Boonah regional economy by providing technical trade employment to locals and as a significant tourist drawcard.

The scenery that surrounds Boonah can only be described as spectacular, with rolling farmland and magnificent mountains, glassy lakes and small country towns. All perfect when viewed from a small aircraft.

The area boasts many National Parks with great bushwalking and two water skiing dams; Lake Moogerah and Maroon Dam. There are many camping areas throughout the region as well as motels, hotels, B & B’s, Farm Stays, Wineries and Caravan Parks.

Boonah is a well serviced small country town with supermarket, post office, shops, hardware and camping stores and an assortment of Cafés and Pubs.


There is  plenty to keep the traveller occupied when they’re not escaping it all by floating through the skies above the region.  For more tourist information contact the Boonah Visitor Information Centre.
