Ballarat Airport (officially known as Ballarat Aerodrome) is situated 7 km northwest of the Ballarat city centre in the outer suburb of Mitchell Park, Victoria, Australia. It has Latitude of 37 30 44, Longitude of 143 47 30 and Altitude of 1433 ft (436.8 m).

The history of the Ballarat Aerodrome dates back to the 1930’s when aviation activities commenced on an unmade airstrip on the Ballarat West Town Common, 7 km northwest of the Ballarat city centre. In 1934, the site saw the building of a corrugated iron hangar and it established the location as an aerodrome. At the present aerodrome site, the Department of Air established the RAAF No. 1 Wireless Air Gunners School in 1940 at the outset of World War II. In 1942, the best performance of the school was reached when it produced 41 officers present and 1,918 airmen in residence.

In 1961, RAAF left the site and Department of Air gave the Aerodrome to the then Shire of Ballarat, with the Aerodrome Local Ownership Plan being observed.. The Shire of Ballarat was issued a licence number 43 on September 11, 1962 which made the Ballarat Aerodrome a licensed aerodrome under the said plan. Nowadays, the Ballarat Aerodrome is owned and operated by the City of Ballarat and is an important asset to the Ballarat community.

If the airport is not a convenient location to collect your rental car, you may also collect your car hire  from another Ballarat Depot.
