Wireless On-site 2

Inside the museum at Wireless Hill you can see this scale model of the site, which shows the 120m radio tower, large concrete anchor blocks and buildings, as they were in their heyday.

There is also a current exhibition titled “50 Years, 50 Objects: Melville City”. We especially liked this 1960s handbag style transistor radio.

Wireless On-site 1

On Wednesday we visited Wireless Hill in the Perth suburb of Ardross. The site was set up in 1912 with a 120m tall radio mast for international wireless radio communication and to contact ships at sea using Morse Code. Today the mast is gone, but you can still see the heritage listed buildings and the huge anchor blocks (below).
