Air Force Locations

Find out about our geographic coverage and areas of operation; some of the functions of our air bases; and where they are located across Australia.

A global force

The Air Force operates from air bases throughout Australia, and deploys overseas as required to. During exercises and in response to international events, we also use the aviation facilities of partner governments and strategic allies.

Broad-based capability

The locations of Air Force air bases provide broad coverage of Australia whilst satisfying specific strategic needs. Some are home to Air Force squadrons of fighter, surveillance and transport aircraft plus air traffic control, while others fulfil intelligence-gathering, specialist training and administrative functions.
