Airport Terminal Upgrade

The airport terminal project involves a $9.42 million expansion of the existing terminal, and will include a new café and retail area, a new baggage carousel and more passenger seating.

The project is largely funded under the NSW Government’s Restart NSW Regional Tourism Infrastructure Fund, with $6.55 million contributed to the terminal upgrade and the remainder from the Federal Government and Council.
