Kalgoorlie-Boulder Airport

Kalgoorlie-Boulder Airport is an airport in Kalgoorlie, Western Australia. The airport is 3 nautical miles (5.6 km; 3.5 mi) south of the city.

Construction and fencing of the Kalgoorlie Aerodrome commenced in 1928, and completed the following year with Royal Australian Airforce landing five Wapiti Jupiter Series aeroplanes in front of large crowds. The aeroplanes were making their way to Perth in preparation for the East-West Air Race.

Ownership of the airport was transferred from the Commonwealth Government to the Shire of Boulder in 1989 with a A$4.2 million grant to construct a new terminal and additional runway space. The new airport opened in November 1992.

The airport handled 259,958 passengers in the year ending 30 June 2011, making it the 21st busiest airport in Australia.
