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.
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.
We were walking beside the Swan River in Como a few days back and noticed that the local cormorants have a rather nice view of Perth CBD.
That’s Perth above, as seen from Kings Park, with the CBD on the left and the Narrows Bridge and Old Swan Brewery on the right. But since the Swan Coastal Plain is rather flat, you can see Perth from many different parts of the metropolitan area.
Can you figure where these three photos were taken? One hint: They are in the order of increasing distance from the city centre.
So, how many could you recognise? The second photo from the top was taken from Lake Monger (5km from CBD) on a rainy day. The one above is from Herdsman Lake (6km), and the one below from Bold Park (8km).
