It opened in 1931 as Kingaroy Aerodrome. It was taken over by the Royal Australian Air Force in October 1941 as Landing Ground No. 375 and formally acquired by the Commonwealth government in June 1943, becoming RAAF Station Kingaroy. Four runways and 180 buildings were constructed between July 1942 and May 1943. It was downgraded to an unstaffed Emergency Landing Ground in June 1945 and returned to civilian control in July 1946.
There are two runways, the main is 16/34 and is 1,600 m × 30 m (5,249 ft × 98 ft) and the second, 05/23, is 1,303 m × 30 m (4,275 ft × 98 ft). There are no scheduled services but the airport is used by charter flights to the gas fields in far west Queensland.
The airport has an active gliding club the Kingaroy Soaring Club that makes use of some of the World War 2 infrastructure for its hangar, club house and bunk house.
