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.
