Wireless Hill Park is a 40 hectare park located in the City of Melville. 38 of those hectares are native Australian bushland and 2 hectares are recreational areas. It is packed full of family amenities including BBQs, picnic tables, a nature playground, grassed areas, toilets, parking areas, a City of Melville war memorial, the Wireless Hill Museum and the iconic radio towers. Visitors can climb up one of the radio towers via stairs and access inspiring views of the Swan River and Perth City. Vehicle access to the park is available from Almondbury Road, extending on to Telefunken Drive in Ardross, with additional pedestrian access from various points along streets in Ardross, Booragoon and Alfred Cove.
Wireless Hill Park recreational area
The park features numerous bush walk trails with wide paths suitable for prams, strollers and bicycles. During wildflower season, you will be impressed by the stunning display of wildflowers and you may see some friendly native birds and lizards along the way. Dogs are welcome in the park as long as they are kept on a lead at all times, and any mess is cleaned up by their responsible owners.

The Wireless Hill Museum is located inside the park in the old engine room of the Wireless Station, which was used for telecommunications during the World Wars. The museum has regular exhibitions, educational talks, school holiday activities and a learning program about radio technology, Morse code, telecommunications, artwork and local Melville history. It is open on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays and entry is free.
The Wireless Hill Farmers Market is now open every Sunday from 8am to 12pm regardless of weather conditions. It features a range of locally produced goods including seasonal locally produced fruit and vegetables (some organic) plus bread, grass fed meat, poultry, fish, seafood, jams, pickles, chutneys, olive oil, olives, flowers, eggs, herbs, tea, honey, wine, natural dog food, dairy products, cereal, handcrafted chocolate and fresh pasta. There are a few craft stalls to add some variety to the market.
Several food vans are present for a Sunday coffee, breakfast, brunch or lunch. Free face painting and buskers provide entertainment to add to the family-friendly festive community atmosphere. Only a few stalls have EFTPOS facilities so remember to bring cash as there are no ATMs nearby, with the nearest located at Garden City Shopping Centre.
Wireless Hill Farmers Market open every Sunday
The market staff offer a parcel drop off service where they will mind your purchases while you move your car closer as there is limited parking on site and the overflow parking on Links Road and the City of Melville council chambers is a short walk away.
