Airport facilities


Air traffic control

    The control tower at Moorabbin Airport is located in the central western zone of the airport, adjacent to the MAC offices on Bundora Parade. The operating hours for the tower are published in the Enroute Supplement.


Currently both AVGAS and AVTUR (Jet A1) are available from a range of operators, with both fuel types being distributed by tanker vehicles. Self-serve AVGAS dispensers are also provided.


    At present Moorabbin Airport maintains a non-directional beacon (NDB) located on the western side of the airport along second avenue.

    This navaid remains operational, as a number of GA aircraft types use this facility as a primary means of navigation and training.

    This navaid has been retained in the Airservices Australia network to provide a back-up to satellite based navigational systems, although many newer aircraft no longer retain the required avionics equipment to use it.


Five runways service the Airport. Runways 17L/35R and 17R/35L are equipped with low intensity runway lighting. The current runways and associated lengths and widths are as follows:

Runway Length x width (m)
17L/35R 1335 x 30
17R/35L 1240 x 18
13L/31R 1150 x 30
13R/31L 1060 x 18
04/22 571 x 18



State significant infrastructure

    Moorabbin Airport is recognised as a state significant asset by the Victorian Government and provides a key economic and employment function for both Melbourne and Victoria. MAC aims to strengthen the specialised activity of Moorabbin Airport through continued promotion of the airport as a major employment precinct for the local community, south-east region of Melbourne and the State of Victoria.

    Moorabbin Airport is working hard to develop meaningful strategic relationships with the Victorian State Government to enhance the offerings for our aviation tenants and expand their networks into growth areas in south-east Asia.


Aviation infrastructure

    Aviation infrastructure includes runways, taxiways, passenger terminal, hardstand and grassed parking and an Air Traffic Control Tower. There are five operational runways at Moorabbin, with an estimated 13 kilometres of sealed runways and taxiways. The Airport has recently upgraded its airfield lighting to the latest technology.
