Going Airside at Rockhampton Airport? 

Rockhampton Regional Council has a specific responsibility to control access to restricted and prohibited areas of the airport, and to regulate and control persons and vehicles within those areas.  The control of vehicles on airside is necessary to meet the regulatory obligations applying to Rockhampton Regional Council and ensures procedures are in place to prevent unauthorised entry into the movement area.  Applications for Airside Vehicle Permits and/or Airside Drivers Authorisation must be submitted no less than 7 working days before any anticipated need.
