The Clare Valley Aerodrome is located on RM Williams Way 14Kms North of the township of Clare and 10 minutes from the picturesque Clare Valley wine region.  The region boasts a scenic array of pristine farmland, quaint vineyards, and heritage buildings, which from the sky, looks like a patchwork of villages and trees.

 On Base for Runway 35 Clare Valley

The Aerodrome  construction commenced in 2010 and is ongoing .Having established the Aerodrome we have ccreated an aerial gateway to he Clare Valley and surrounding regions.
The Clare Valley is a  the perfect stop-off location between the South and the North (from Adelaide to the Flinders Ranges and beyond), and the West and the East, (between Western Australia and Victoria). It's also an easy flight to regional Queensland and the Top End.

With a Magnificent 18 Hole Golf Course  (known as one of the best country courses in South Australia and more than 35 cellar doors to visit, an array of bed & breakfast and luxury accommodation options, and fine dining restaurants aplenty, the Clare Valley is a fantastic place to stay and visit.

Pickups and car tours can be arranged from the Aerodrome to explore the region.

The building of the Aerodrome:

 In 2010, the CVFG Inc completed parts of Stage One  to establish an Aerodrome for the region. The Aerodrome features a North-South 1200m x 18m runway, built to RFDS standards for aircraft 5,700kg. Recently, a 600m long grass cross strip has been completed. The Terminal Building also provides panoramic views of all Runway activities as well as toilet and facilities for visiting pilots to use.

The Aerodrome provides:

  • Aerial fire fighting capabilities for a safer Clare Valley
  • Agricultural aerial spraying and spreading
  • Infrastructure for agricultural, commercial and recreational aviation
  • Aerial gateway for tourism and business to the Clare Valley
  • Flight Training -(Spencer Gulf Flight Training ), (Adelaide Flight Training-Parafield based)

 Recently we have installed a stand alone power generation,solar& battery powered with a back up generator.

The Terminal Building has also had a Evaporative airconditiong system installed for the comfort of all using our facility.

"The Clare Valley Aerodrome is one of the most exciting and beneficial projects undertaken in our district for a long time, " Adrian Smith, founding President of CVFG Inc
