Geelong Airport is a small airfield specifically for light aircraft located in Mount Duneed, Australia. It is primarily used for scenic flights and private aircraft, and is located in the Local Government Area of the City of Greater Geelong.

The airport has remained small and undeveloped and contains two gravel/tarmac runways: north/south & east/west. Though commercial airlines have attempted to fly services to Geelong in the past, they have chosen to use the more developed airport at Avalon Airport, located to the north on the Melbourne side of the city. Other airports in the area are at Barwon Heads and the Torquay Air Park in Blackgate Road.

The site is also used to record wind and weather measurements for the area. Geelong airport is under threat of sale to property developers to allow for the expansion of the urban sprawl of Geelong.
