Dargaville Airfield from the East

Dargaville Aerodrome (IATA: DGRICAO: NZDA) is a small airport located 1 Nautical Mile (1.9 km) southeast of Dargaville township in Northland, New Zealand.

The airfield has an active aero club which provides training in advanced microlight aircraft, and has a regular 'fly-in' lunch once a week that attracts aviators from the north of the NZ North island.

It is a base for topdressing aircraft working the surrounding area, and has Avgas available with a Mobil swipecard.

Dargaville airfield is at sea level at the northern end of the large Kaipara harbour, forming a pair with the similar sea level West Auckland Airport, at Parakai at the southern end of the harbour some 50 miles away.
