Avalon Airport | Geelong, Australia

Avalon Airport | ExpoQuote

Avalon Airport was founded in 1952, when the Commonwealth purchased 4,333 acres to enable the construction and testing of the Canberra Jet Bomber Aircraft. Since then, it has played a key role in Australia’s aerospace industry.

In early 1997, Linfox purchased Avalon Airport from the Commonwealth. Today, the Group is broadly diversified in several growth industries covering freight, logistics and aviation and has consistently emerged as a market leader in every field they have entered. The Linfox Group also owns Essendon Airport, Luna Park, and Phillip Island Race-track, in addition to Linfox Logistics and Armaguard. The Linfox Group has earned a reputation as one of the most successful businesses in Australia.

Since taking over Avalon Airport, Linfox has invested many millions in upgrading the airport’s facilities and infrastructure.

There are lots of exciting exhibitions held in Australia each year at a variety of venues. Avalon Airport acts as a venue for the AVALON – Australian International Airshow every two years. The next airshow will be held in 2023, after the 2021 Airshow had to be cancelled due to Covid-19. The event attracts an attendance of over 195,000 across the six days, including exhibitors from the international aerospace industry and government, military, scientific and trade delegates.

The Exposition and the Airshow are presented in the interest of promoting the development of aviation and Australian industrial, manufacturing and information/communications technology resources in the aviation, aerospace and defence sectors.
