Description

Wireless Hill Museum

For the past one hundred years Wireless Hill has played an important role in Western Australia’s history.

From 1912 the station was used for telecommunications and was one of Australia’s first links with radio technology. It provided an important link for Perth, one of the most remote cities in the world.

Using Morse Code, the telecommunication station communicated with ships off the Australian coast using a mast 112 metres tall. The station also connected Perth with the eastern seaboard, London, Antarctic bases and the rest of the world. Applecross Wireless Station became a feeder station for international radiograms, weather reports, news bulletins and press reports. For a historical timeline of the Station, click here.

In 1968 the station was vacated and the land was bought by the City of Melville and is now a public reserve and museum. The Wireless Hill Station is on the Western Australian Register of Heritage Places.in Perth the significance of the site to Melville, Australia and the world
 

The current exhibition: 'Radiosonic!

The First 50 Years of the Wireless and Gramophone in WA'.

A new exhibition held in partnership with the Vintage Gramophone & Wireless Club of WA, Radiosonic! showcases radios and objects from both collections and tells the story of the role that Wireless Hill played in the history of this loved form of communication.
