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.
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).
We went along to the Buddha’s Birthday celebration at Elizabeth Quay in Perth on the weekend. Plenty of stalls selling great vegetarian food!
Plenty of interesting cafes and speciality shops to explore under the old fashioned verandahs in Maylands, just 5km northeast of Perth city centre.
Cheerful main street (actually Eighth Avenue) in Perth suburb of Maylands, with retro shop facades and projecting verandahs to shelter the footpath.
We visited the suburb of Maylands yesterday, just 5km northeast of Perth CBD. Liked the relaxed retro atmosphere, trendy cafes and old style shops with projecting verandahs.
Also liked this mural by Vans the Omega and Beastman at 140 in central Perth. It’s on the Wellington Street side of the building.
