The Alpine Shire Council at its December meeting voted to approve the rezoning of land adjacent to the Mount Beauty airport. The last stage in this process is for the Minister to give his seal. This will allow the Airpark to provide a variety of zonings and lot sizes. Importantly too, the rezoning allows the planned extension of the runway to proceed.
Late in 2016 the “Gathering of the Moths” attracted one of the largest fly-in fleets to assemble at Mount Beauty. See the latest photo on the “Gallery” page (Gallery).
