Wireless Hill Museum is in Wireless Hill Park, Telefunken Drive (extending from Almondbury Road), Ardross.
As part of the Wireless Hill Vision 2020 Project, Wireless Hill Park is undergoing Stage Two works which shall include an upgrade to the accessibility, conservation, recreation and heritage value of the park.
This community-consulted project is a joint initiative between the City of Melville and Lotterywest.
Stage Two of the Vision 2020 project has seen the completed refurbishment works to Macadam Road, a historically significant asset, and renewal of signage around the perimeters of the bushland. There will also be the completion of a major interpretive signage project, which will explore the Indigenous, natural and built heritage of the site.
Conservation works to three buildings, including the former Operator's House affectionately known as the Cottage, the former Stores Building where Capital Community Radio operates today and the former Engine House which now houses the Wireless Hill Museum, have now been completed. All buildings are listed as heritage assets.
The general park area and facilities, barbecues and one restroom, are available to the public seven days a week. Wireless Hill Park is also the site of the new City of Melville War Memorial.
