List of Royal Australian Air Force installations
This is a list of current and previous Royal Australian Air Force airstrips, aerodromes and bases. The air force also owns and
maintains "bare bases" in remote areas of Australia. These bases have runways and buildings, but only a caretaker staff. They are
generally only used for exercises as there are no units permanently based there.
