Applecross Radio Station

Applecross 1912 – 1966

by Neil Yakalis

These are my 1995 pictures of Applecross Radio Station (1912 – 1966) See how similar the building is to Pennant Hills as they were built from the same plans.

The 2nd photo shows the Swan River with Perth CBD buildings in the distance. Both photos were taken from the lookout tower which was one of the three 400 foot mast guy anchors. The brown stains on the buildings are from irrigation underground water being used for the grass.

Today Wireless Hill is a popular family picnic area. The museum was always open to the public on Sunday afternoons. Later this month, on Sunday 30th September 2012, the Centenary celebration takes place here.
