Google search on "Corunna airstrip" gave me 126 hits. This was a pretty important airfield during WWII, and over 2km long, taking the biggest bombers. Long while since I've been there (late 80's), but quite interesting, and Corunna station had a few interesting relics in their museum.

There is a small book available at ther Marble Bar Tourist Bureau called Corunna Downs The Invisible WW2 Airfield. It's an interesting read. Unfortunately it doesn't include a layout of the area.

You'll have fun trying to sort out the WW2 building sites from subsequent mining infrastructure. get up on the ridge nearby and you will be able to spot a lot of the airfield features, such as gun pits and aircraft dispersal areas.

The lady at the Marble Bar Caravan Park is a mine of information and has some plans available.
