Located about 50km to the north west of Sydney, Australia.

If you are driving to the museum from Sydney, see the following instructions.

Drive through Windsor and Richmond. When going over the North Richmond bridge, reset your trip counter - we are 8.42km from the North Richmond PO, (that's why our number is 842), follow Bell's Line of Road, you'll go through Kurmond - 60km speed limit - and pass the turn off for Kurrajong. You then go down hill (still 60km zone!!), eventually coming to the 80km zone.

When you get to the bottom of the hill you'll cross Little Wheeny Creek and then start ascending, passing the 2nd Old Bell's Line of Rd intersection on your left. The road then goes to 2 lanes up hill - Go into the fast lane, as you will be turning right into our driveway. You will see an earth bank running for 30 metres - our driveway entrance is immediately where the bank ends.

Some example model pages for sets you can see there:

AUS: Kingsley brand; K/CR/11 (1942?)
GB: Eddystone, EC1680/1 (1982)
NZ: Ultimate Brand, Z.C. 1 Mk II (Mk2) (1944)
USA: Collins Radio 51J-4 (R-388A) (1957-63)
USA: Watkins Johnson WJ-8709 (1982-98)

Description

The museum is a privately funded operation displaying many aspects of radio and is run by Ian O'Toole VK2ZIO. It contains many operational radios and other equipment ready to be demonstrated.
Visitors will be given a guided tour.

There are lots of sounds to listen to, Morse Keys and buzzers just waiting to be warmed by fingers, teleprinters to be tried and several hundred radios and related items to be looked at. You can look into a Broadcast Control Room and check out the AWA Room to see what a once great Australian company achieved.

There are radios from the Outback, tanks, ships and aircraft - maybe even one like your Granny had at home! Come and be amazed!
