Wireless Hill Park offers a unique opportunity to enjoy native bushland and animals, together with walks that offer stunning views of our Swan River and city centre.
We are fortunate to have Wireless Hill Park as a legacy of the Wireless Hill communications station. At the time that the communication station was built, the entire area was cleared, apart from a small patch of land near the current Council Office carpark. Veldt grass (from South Africa) was planted to stabilise the soil.
The bush has largely regenerated itself from seeds of native plants in the surrounding bush, which are now the suburbs of Booragoon, Ardross, Alfred Cove and Applecross. Gradually, the Veldt grass is being replaced by natural vegetation.
The Wireless Hill bushland has been able to thrive among the suburbs, due to the area being reserved for the communication station and therefore not available for housing development.
In 2012 Wireless Hill Park will celebrate its 100th anniversary. Community plans are underway to mark this historic occasion.
