Muttaburra Airport[1] (IATA: UTB, ICAO: YMTB)[2] is a small airstrip in the remote town of Muttaburra in the state of Queensland, Australia. The airport is located about 6 km (4 mi) from the town and is near the golf course.[3]

Its main use is for bringing in supplies, but it is also used by the Royal Flying Doctor Service of Australia and some of the local property owners that hire a plane because they don't have their own airstrip or plane to fly to major cities or towns to go shopping and get more supplies.
