Coominya airfield was a relief landing ground for Lowood airfield. After approval in 1941, the Queensland Main Roads Commission commenced work on Coominya airfield in 1942.

The approximate total cost of 11,449 included clearing, grubbing, surface formation, the preparation of a landing strip, with taxiway, dispersal strips, and hideouts in heavy timber, also fencing, draining with reinforced concrete pipes, and the construction of a half mile access road.
