Perth Airport

Perth International Airport has separate facilities but shares the same runways and taxi-ways as the Domestic Terminal. The international terminal is located at the end of Horrie Miller Drive near Cloverdale whereas the domestic terminal is located in Redcliffe, at the end of Brearley Avenue. Both of these roads are named after local aviation pioneers. This new international terminal was opened in 1986, at the same time as the new airport control tower
