Pine Creek Airfield was an emergency landing ground at Pine Creek, Northern Territory, Australia during World War II.

Civil airfield extended by B Company and HQ Detachment of the 808th Engineer Aviation Battalion between 11 May 1942 to 16 July 1942. The runway was 6,000 ft × 100 ft (1,829 m × 30 m) wide.

Due to housing development and road and railway construction, the runway length has now been decreased to about 700 m (2,300 ft), with a gravel surface.
