Description: Antil Plains Aerdodrome was an aerodrome located 19.38 kilometres (12.04 mi) south of Townsville, Queensland, Australia near Antill Plains.

The aerodrome was constructed in 1942, during World War II, for the Royal Australian Air Force as part of a group of airfields to be used as aircraft dispersal fields in the event of Imperial Japanese attack on the Townsville area. It was leased to the United States Army Air Force.

The aerodrome had two runways, one running east-west and the other NE-SW. It was abandoned after the war. Today, the airfield is in constant use by the Barrier Reef Adventure Trikes (B.R.A.T.S) Who fly their ultralights. There are numerous hangers and a model aero club at the end of runway 270. The airfield is now owned and operated by Andrew Hicks and is referred to locally as Montpelier; www.montpelier-microlights.com.au. Current members include women pilots Pam Pemberton, Ruth Moore and Natalie Tonking. The male flyers are Pembo, Pete Holmes, Tim Moore, Steve Runciman and Perry (Tonker Toy) Tonking.
