MORUYA AIRFIELD
MORUYA HEADS, NSW
DURING WWII

 

Moruya Airfield was constructed by the RAAF in 1942 at Moruya Heads in New South Wales.

No 11 Operational Base Unit was located at Moruya to provide support for RAAF aircraft utilising the airfield. The airfield was used infrequently for coastal patrols, and also as a refuelling point for aircraft in transit. The airfield consisted of three sealed runways.

 In October 1944, Moruya airfield was downgraded to an Emergency Landing Ground (ELG).

The airfield is currently still operational with only two of the original three runways in use.
